oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Three new Haemolaelaps species (Acarina: Laelaptidae) from birds in the Ethiopian region, and a redescription of Haemolaelaps mesopicos Radford

Volume 22, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



The new species descriptionbed in this paper all key out to Haemolaelaps mesopicos Radford in the key given by Zumpt and Till (1953) to the Ethiopian species of the genus Haemolaelaps. The redescriptionption of H. mesopicos is based on a series of mites collected in Natal. Dr. G. Owen Evans and Dr. J. G. Sheals of the British Museum have very kindly given me information regarding the type specimens, which has enabled me to assign the Natal series to Radford's species.
