Abstract

The elongate hair follicle mite, Demodex caballi, of the horse is renamed, redescribed and figured for all stages in the life cycle. Some notes are provided on population structure including a sex ratio of 1: 4.4, and on its distribution in the Meibomian (tarsal) gland complex. This species appears to be a low grade pathogen.
