Dorsum of female Adamystis yvesi, from Ueckermann (1989).

Belongs within: Prostigmata.
Contains: Caeculidae, Paratydeoidea, Anystidae, Teneriffiidae.

The Anystina are a diverse group of mostly predatory mites, members of which have the fixed cheliceral digits reduced and the movable digit often blade- or sickle-like. A well-developed palpal thumb-claw process is also often present. Many members of the Anystina 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. These include the Pseudocheylidae, characterised by pad-like tarsal apoteles padlike, produced on annulate stalks, reduced palptarsi, and the absence of genital papillae. The Paratydeoidea are soft-bodied, elongate mites with the front two pairs of legs widely separated from the rear two pairs (Walter et al. 2009).
