Abstract

Fortpflanzungsverhalten der Rhagidiidae (Acarina Trombidiformes). - The mating behaviour of 8 Rhagidiens is described, The mites Rhagidia arenaria, Rhagidia clavicrinita and Rhagidia halophila have an indirect insemination. The spermatophores consist of a thin thread topped by a number of sperm drops (Rhagidia halophila) or just one single coated drop (Rhagidia arenaria, Rhagidia clavicrinita). By Rhagidia longisensilla, Rhagidia mitcronata, Rhagidia pratensis, Rhagidia reflexa and Rhagidia danica a thelytoke parthenogenesis was found and experimentally proved.
