The life histories of Platynothruspeltifer (Koch, 1839) and Damaeus clavipes (Hermann, 1804) (Acarina: Cryptostigmata) in soils of Pennine moorland
1965 - Volume: 7 Issue: 4 pages: 735-743
Information is given of the biology and life histories of two species of oribatid mites in soils of Pennine moorland under a sub-arctic climate. By examination of the immature stages from monthly samples, it is shown that both species have a single annual generation. Platynothrus pellifer bred both in the spring and autumn, and Damaeus clavipes only in the autumn.
