Atropacarus

Atropacarus sp., copyright Scott Justis.


Belongs within: Phthiracaridae.

Atropacarus is a cosmopolitan genus of phthiracarid mites with three or four pairs of closely-placed setae on the inner margin of the ano-adanal plates. The type subgenus Atropacarus, with four pairs of such setae, is sometimes treated separately from the remaining subgenera with three pairs, which are then placed as the genus Hoplophorella.

Notophthiracarus is a genus of ptyctimous oribatid mites that is particularly diverse in the Oriental and Australasian regions (Niedbała 2001).

Characters (from Balogh & Balogh 1992): Genital setae arranged in one longitudinal row along inner margin of genital plates; ano-adanal plates with five pairs of setae. Seta d on tibia IV very short, coupled with solenidion.
