Pyroglyphidae

House dust mites Dermatophagoides pteronyssinus, from Time.


Belongs within: Analgoidea.

The Pyroglyphidae are a morphologically and ecologically diverse group of astigmatic mites including the house dust mites and related taxa.

Characters (from OConnor 2009): Chelicerae well developed. Genu III with solenidion ς present; tibia IV with one ventral seta; tarsus I with solenidion ω1 inserted subapically, very near solenidion ω3; tarsus II with solenidion ω inserted in basal half of segment; pretarsi I and II with ambulacral stalks shorter than tarsi.
