Apis cerana hives mites


Two species of Astigmatic mites were found in debris collected from hives of the Asian honey bee, Apis cerana Fabricuis, in Thailand. One, Austroglycyphagus thailandicus (Glycyphagidae) is newly described herein. The other, Forcellinia faini Delfinado-Baker and Baker, 1989 (Acaridae), was initially described from beehives in Puerto-Rico, and the present record enlarges its known distribution.
