The genus Zetzellia Oudemans (Acariformes: Stigmaeidae) is reported for the first time from Pakistan as well as from South Asia, with a new species Z. sialkotensis sp. nov. The new species is described and illustrated based on both female and male, collected from Sorghum halepense L. (Poaceae) in association with Tetranychus spp. (Acariformes: Tetr...

... Studies on the species E. segnis have been related to the fauna and systematics (Berlese 1885, Buitendijk 1945, Summers 1957, Summers and Price 1961, Wood 1973, Wainstein and Kuznetsov 1978, Goff 1987, Hu et al. 1996, Kaźmierski et al. 1997, Kalúz 1998, Koç and Ayyıldız 2000, Khanjani and Ueckermann 2002, Doğan 2005, Santamaría et al. 2012, Khaustov and Sergeyenko 2014, Rehman et al. 2016). Up to now, no data on morphometric comparisons in E. segnis has been recorded. ...

Eustigmaeus segnis (Koch) is one of the cosmopolitan mite (Acari) species of the genus in the family Stigmaeidae. It has been collected in wide range of habitats such as soil, litter, grass, moss, lichen, decayed bark, woodland humus and anthill. The aim of this study is to statistically analysis morphometric differences of Eustigmaeus segnis on the basis of the Turkish specimens and to understand morphometric variations in the species. For this purpose, statistical analyses were conducted with the one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), Kruskal Wallis H and Mann Whitney U test to describe the differences in the measurable morphological characters of the total 27 specimens of Eustigmaeus segnis (Koch) collected from Harşit Valley (10 specimens), Ekşisu Marshes (10 specimens) and Ardıçlı Lake surroundings (7 specimens) in Turkey. As a result; of the 63 morphometric features, such as the idiosomal and gnathosomal sizes, lengths and distances of the body setae, 50 showed significant differences between the populations. 26 measurable morphological features of the specimens collected from Harşit Valley and Ardıçlı Lake population were significantly higher than those of the specimens collected from Ekşisu Marshes. Also 9 measurable morphological features of the specimens collected from Harşit Valley have higher values than those of other populations. Morphology of mites is closely related to the structure of their habitats. The morphometric variations in the species may be a result of adaptation to specific environmental conditions. Future studies being performed with larger and standardised samples from various habitats may confirm this explanation on environmental conditions-specific morphometric variations among the Eustigmaeus segnis specimens.

We present the first comprehensive inventory of the mites of Pakistan, based on data from published books and papers. The fauna as presently understood includes 126 families, 316 genera, and 1105 species. The best-documented genera are those that include pests of stored food (for example Acotyledon, 28 species), plant pests (Brevipalpus, 49 species; Tenuipalpus, 35 species), and beneficial predators (Euseius, 44 species; Neoseiulus, 37 species; Phytoseius, 36 species; Typhlodromus, 47 species). Some economically important families such as the Eriophyidae are almost completely unknown. Some of the Cryptostigmata have been studied, but other groups of soil mites are very poorly known. Other large groups such as the feather mites, water mites, Uropodina, and parasitic Astigmata and Prostigmata, have not been studied in a systematic way. An increase in knowledge of these groups would help an assessment of their economic importance, and would make a valuable contribution to the biogeography of the western section of the Oriental Region and the southern section of the Palaearctic Region.

Eryngiopus discus Meyer, 1969 (Acari: Trombidiformes: Stigmaeidae), the first species of the genus Eryngiopus Summers recorded from Saudi Arabia, is re-described and illustrated. The specimens of this species were collected from foxtail grass Cenchrus sp. (Poaceae) and Euryops arabicus (Asteraceae). Also, the species of the genus Eryngiopus are categorized into two species groups, bakeri and gracilis, based on three and four pairs of prodorsal setae, respectively. A key to the world species of the genus Eryngiopus is provided too.

The genus Zetzellia is known in all zoogeographical regions except Antarctic (Palaearctic 11, Nearctic 3, Neotropic 9, Afrotropic 2, Indo-Malaya 8, Australasia 7 (Fan & Zhang, 2005;Fan et al. 2016). Thirty two species belonging to the genus are known worldwide (Negm et al. 2015;Rehman et al. 2016;Fan et al. 2016;Bingül & Doğan, 2017). Of these, only 3 species are known from Turkey; Zetzellia mali (Ewing), Z. talhouki Dosse and Z. erzincanica Bingül & Doğan (Bingül & Doğan, 2017). ...
