While studying the cause or causes of the sporadic appearance of a hypopal or ""wander-nymph"" stage in the life cycles of some acarid mites, difficulty was experienced in finding a satisfactory medium on which to rear Rhizoglyphus echinopus (Fumouze & Robin) and a Tyrophagus species. Most of the media tested were unsuitable because of extensive growths of fungi.
