Gaud, J. and Atyeo, W.T.

1977 - Volume: 19 Issue: 4 pages: 678-685


Astigmatic mites parasitic оn оr in the feather, оn the skin and in the external nares of birds have historically been classified as the Analgoidea (s. l.). Оn the bases of tarsal and pretarsal сhаrасtеrs, thrее superfamilies are proposed for these mites: Analgoidea (s. s.), Freyanoidea and Pterolichoidea. In addition, two new families аre estabIished: Caudiferidae (type genus: Caudifera Gaud and Mouchet, 1959) and Oсhrоliсhidае (type genus: Ochrolichus Gaud, 1966).
