Abstract

The moth ear mite, Dicrocheles phalaenodectes (Treat), possesses both a lyrate organ and a camera spermatis but lacks both a sacculus foemineus and intercoxal spermathecae. Insemination is vaginal. Ten pairs of muscles or muscle groups control the genital aperture and associated structures. Several of these are attached to skeletal elements comprising the genital apodemes and arcs chitineux of Fain. The posterior limbs of these arcs are continuous with the peritremal plates.
