Abstract

The leg chaetotaxy of 32 species of the family Spinturnicidae (Acari: Mesostigmata) was studied. The genus Spintumix has the lowest degree of specialization. Paraspinturnix globosus has a Spinturnix-like chaetotaxy which suggest a close taxonomie relationship. The genera Ancystropus and Meristaspis forma very evolved, closely related, complex of species, as inferred from their chaetotactic features. The genera Periglischrus, Cameronieta and Eyndhovenia display sorne affinities, but these taxa showed a smaller linkage than that observed between Meristaspis and Ancystropus.
