oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - A new blood-sucking mite from the South African springhare
During a trip to the Northern Transvaal, I collected from the common springhare (Pedetes caffer Pallas) two species of mites. The one was Hypoaspis (Androlaelaps) sp. nov. to be descriptionbed by me; the other one, of which I collected a great number of specimens, represents a new genus also belonging to the Laelaptidae sensu Vitzthum (1943).
