Abstract

The mites (Acari) found in seven nests of the Dipper, Cinclus cinclus aquaticus Bechstein, in Wales, British Isles, are studied. They belong to 54 species, included in 46 genera, 27 families and 4 orders. This collection includes several stored food pests or species able to invade houses or to produce respiratory allergies in man, e.g. Tyrophagus putrescentiae (Schrank), T. longior (Gervais), T. palmarum Oudemans, Acarus farris (Oudemans), Dermatophagoides farinae Hughes and Kleemannia plumigera (Oudemans). Several fleas, Dasypsyllus g. gallinae (Dale), found in one nest, were parasitized by phoretic hypopi of Acarus avicolus Fain and Beaucournu. Tyrophagus nidicola Dambre-Raes, 1974, is considered here as a synonym of Tyrophagus palmarum Oudemans, 1924.
