oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - The Genus Steatonyssus Kolenati in the Ethiopian Region (Acarina: Laelaptidae)

Volume 17, Issue 1
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



The genus Steatonyssus was erected by Kolenati {l858} to include the two species St. periblepharus Kol. and St. brachypeltis Kol., which are regarded by da Fonscca as being conspecific with Dermanyssus murinus Lucas, 1840. The genus is well characterised within the true Liponyssinae. In this paper we propose to give a key to the Stealonyssus species of the Ethiopian region followed by the descriptionptions of the two new species and notes on the known ones.
