Recently we published a preliminary study of the Ethiopian Laelaptid mites parasitic on vertebrates (1951). It was quite clear to us then that this was but a beginning. Many more new genera and species would be discovered and descriptionbed, and there would have to be several taxonomic changes before we could say that we had a sound knowledge of the Ethiopian fauna of this group.
