The life-cycle of two species of the genus Glycyphagus (Acari, Astigmata) is described. Dermacarus newyorkensis Fain, 1969, known previously only from the hypopus stage, becomes the type species of a new subgenus Zapodacarus, in Glycyphagus. A new species is described in this new subgenus, Glycyphagus (Zapodacarus) zapus sp. n. The species are closely related biologically and morphologically and were found in the same rodent nest. Their hypopi are not separable.
