Acamerobia inflatus gen. n. & sp. n. from Australia (Acari: Prostigmata: Raphignathoidea: Camerobiidae) with notes on the idiosomal chaetotaxy

Qing-Hai Fan, David E. Walter


Currently, six genera are known in the family Camerobiidae (Acari: Prostigmata). Herein we propose a new genus, Acamerobia, based on a new species, Acamerobia inflatus, from bark of Jacaranda mimosifolia in Brisbane, Australia, and redefine the family and provide a key to genera. We also give comments on the idiosomal chaetotaxy for the family.
