In the annual report of the South African Institute for Medical Research for the year 1956 (Johannesburg, 1957, p. 61), it was announced that the Department of Entomology, in collaboration with other institutes, was preparing a check-list of arthropods parasitizing vertebrates in Africa south of the Sahara. During the compilation of this list several questions have arisen concerning the systematics and synonymy of the mesostigmatic mites. The various problems encountered are discussed in the present paper.
