oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Three new Pteronyssus species from the Red-Billed Wood Hoopoe, Phoeniculus purpureus (Miller). (Acarina Analgesidae)

 

Abstract

The most recent definition of the genus Pteronyssus Robin, 1868, has been given by Gaud (1952, 1953). According to this author the genus is characterised by the hypertrophied third pair of legs in the male, the absence of spines or tubercles on the anterior legs, the presence of a single median vertical hair, and the subdivision into three parts (one anterior and two postero-lateral) of the notogastric plate of the female.
