Redescription of Paracaropsis travisi (Baker, 1949) (Trombidiformes: Cheyletidae), with range expansion, additional host records, and reevaluation of cheyletid chaetotaxy based on the sejugal furrow
2014 - Volume: 54 Issue: 3 pages: 335-345
A lectotype and paralectotype are designated for Paracaropsis travisi, which is redescribed and illustrated. Specimens are reported from additional Laphria hosts in Michigan and leaf litter in Arkansas. After comparision of Nearctic and Palearctic specimens, the synonymization of Paracaropsis travisi (Baker, 1949) and Paracaropsis strofi (Samsinak, 1956) is upheld. We also review the Grandjean System and reevaluate idosomal setal nomenclature in Cheyletidae based on the sejugal furrow.
