Anystides

Parateneriffia sp., from here.


Belongs within: Prostigmata.
Contains: Caeculidae, Anystidae.

The Anystides are a diverse group of mostly predatory mites. Members of this group have the fixed cheliceral digits reduced, and the movable digit is often blade- or sickle-like. A well-developed palpal thumb-claw process is also often present. Many members of the Anystides are associated with dry soils and litter; these include the Adamystidae, a group of medium-sized reddish mites with a sclerotised plate covering much of the dorsum. The Anystoidea are soft-bodied mites, with at most only a weakly-developed prodorsal shield (Walter et al. 2009).
