Scutacaridae taxonomy phoresy ricinulei neotropic fauna Impares new species


The female of Imparipes (I.) tocat/phi/us n. sp. is described. Male and larva are unknown. The new species was discovered in two Mexican caves (Guerrero State), both in soil and guano and upon the Ricinuleid Cryptocellus boneti. This is the first demonstration of ricinuleids as phoresy host for scutacarids. Further findings in southeast Brazil indicate that the new species is widely distributed in the Neotropicai Region.
