oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Genus Cyrtolaelaps Berlese, 1887
Cyrtolaelaps Berl., Gamasellus Berl., Digamasellus Berl. and Euryparasitus Oudmns, are generally regarded as separate genera. In the author's opinion the characters, as outlined in the undermentioned key, which distinguish these taxonomic units do not justify their generic separation. It is now proposed that they should be regarded as subgenera of the genus Cyrtolaelaps Berl., 1887, nec Berlese, 1892. Ryke (1961) refers also the subgenus Gamaselliphis Ryke to this genus.
