Acari Laelapidae Androlaelaps new species Congo-Kinshasa


Androlaelaps dendropicos n. sp. is described from Dendropicos elachus Oberholser from the Republic of Zaïre, and Dendropicos fuscescens (Vieillot) from Mozambique. Remarks on the host relationships and morphology of the mesopicos species-group of Androlaelaps Berlese are included, noting certain trends which could be important in the taxonomy of the group and suggesting the inclusion of A. phoeniculi (Zumpt and Till) in the species-group.
