Abstract

The morphological variability of Pseudofeltria scourfieldi Soar, 1904, a water mite species known from scattered sites in Central and Northern Europe, is documented on the base of populations from the Bavarian Alps and bibliographic data; its diagnostic characters are discussed in comparison with P. quadriscutata Biesiadka, 1971 from Western Beskides (Poland) and P. aemiliana n. sp. from mountain springs in the Region of Emilia Romagna (Italy). Pseudofeltria vanrensburgi Bader, 1974 (Switzerland) is a junior synonym of Forelia variegator (Koch, 1837). A new diagnosis of the subfamily Foreliinae is given and discussed, including species of the genera Pionacercopsis (former subgenus of Pionacercus, here elevated to the genus rank) and Pionacercus.
