Mites of terrestrial Parasitengona group (Acari: Actinotrichida: Prostigmata), inhabiting two types of habitats: patches of meadow vegetation and woodland copses, were considered in the analysis. The material was collected with pitfall traps or directly, during two vegetation seasons. Out of 147 species representing the Polish fauna of Parasitengona terrestria, seven - representatives of Erythraeidae, Trombidiidae and Podothrombiidae - were recorded from the study area. The effectiveness of collecting with pitfall traps was confirmed in relation to Erythraeidae and Podothrombiidae.

    A summarizing work on the earlier recorded oribatid mites from the Balkan Peninsula is presented. Several additional new records are also given. Heminothrus targionii (Berlese, 1885) was found in the first time in Serbia and Heminothrus thori (Berlese, 1904) is the first record for Montenegro....

    Species diversity and density of oribatid mites (Acari: Oribatida) was examined in northern Vietnam in order to investigate how they relate to soil and habitat type, and whether they can be used as bioindicators of these factors. Species diversity and population densities are clearly related to...
