oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - A new species of polyaspid mite closely related to Polyaspis berlesei Camin 1954 (Acarina : Polyaspidae)
In his revision of the Cohort Trachytina Trï¿½gï¿½rdh 1938, Camin (1953) stated the characteristics for the diagnosis of the genus Polyaspis Berlese. In a later publication (1954) he demonstrated "" ...... that Berlese's descriptionption of Polyaspis patavinus (1881), the type species of the genus Polyaspis, was based on at least two different species of closely related mites"" (p. 25). Polyaspis berlesei Camin was descriptionbed in detail as the probable second species used by Berlese in his descriptionption of P. patavinus.
