Abstract

Gaeolaelaps carabidophilus n. sp., a new laelapine mite (Acari: Mesostigmata: Laelapidae) is described and illustrated based on females collected from Stenolophus mixtus (Herbst, 1784) (Coleoptera: Carabidae) on the north-western Black Sea coast (Ukraine, Odessa province). The new species differs from all congeners by the following combination of characters: dorsal soft cuticle hypertrichous, very short peritremes (reaching only to mid-coxa III), dorsal shield with only 39 pairs of setae, sternal shield with 3 pairs of lyrifissures.
