Taxonomy Mesostigmata Hypoaspis


This paper describes a new species of Hypoaspis (Laelapidae), the morphological features of which differ in many ways from any previously described species of the genus. The features which are used to distinguish the new species from the closely related species Hypoaspis angusta Karg 1965 have been proven in serial investigations to have little variability. In contrast to H. angusta Karg 1965, for which no males are known (HABERSAAT, 1989; KOEHLER, 1984), males for the new species are found in cultures (GLOCKEMANN, pers. comm. ). The morphological characteristics of the new species are given for incorporation into identification keys.
