This paper is the result of studies, carried out by the author, on the species of acarines parasitic on acridid locusts (Orthoptera) collected up to the time of the writing of this paper. No serious attempt has been made in South Africa to summarise our knowledge of these mites, with the exception of a short paper of a general nature, published in 1940 by Lawrence (1). In this paper, Lawrence's results have been extended and a full account of the South African members of the genus Podapolipus is given.
