Abstract

A new eviphidid mite, Cryptoseius petrovae gen. et sp. nov., was found under elytra of the beetle Scarabaeus transcaspius Stolfa from Turkmenistan. Descriptions of the female, male and deutonymph are given. The new genus displays a significant superficial resemblance to Scamaphis Karg (Eviphididae) and Coleolaelaps Berlese (Laelapidae), also associated with large scarabaeid beetles. A new combination, Coleolaelaps anoxiae comb, n. (Laelapidae) for Pelethiphis anoxiae Koyumdjieva, 1977 (Eviphididae), is suggested.
