Ameroseiidae female Mesostigmata mite taxonomy


In this paper we redescribe Ameroseius eumorphus Bregetova, 1977 based on morphological characters of female specimens collected from soil and litter from Chaharmahal va Bakhtiari and Khuzestan Provinces, Iran, using comparison with photographs of its holotype. The world distribution, hosts and habitats of this species are reviewed. Epicriopsis baloghi Kandil, 1978 is recorded for the first time from Iran. Ameroseius qinghaiensis Ma, 2008 is a junior primary homonym of Ameroseius qinghaiensis Li and Yang, 2000 and a new replacement name is proposed for this species. We also present corrected data for leg segment sizes of Ameroseius lidiae in Khalili-Moghadam and Saboori (2014).
