Abstract

Larvae and adults of Mamersellides costenius sp.nov., from Mexico and Florida, USA, are described. The resulting new morphological data are incorporated into revised diagnoses for the genus Mamersellides, the subfamily Anisitsiellinae, and the family Anisitsiellidae. Preliminary assessment of character states exhibited by larvae and adults of Mamersellides and other genera of Lebertioidea, and by those of genera of the family Limnesiidae, suggests that a comprehensive cladistic analysis would provide a phylogenetic basis for extensive revision of the classification of these mites.

Résumé

On trouvera ici la description des larves et des adultes de Mamersellides costenius sp.nov., du Mexique et de la Floride, É.-U. Les données morphologiques nouvelles ont été intégrées à la diagnose révisée du genre Mamersellides, de la sous-famille des Anisitsiellinae et de la famille des Anisitsiellidae. L’examen préliminaire des caractères des larves et des adultes de Mamersellides et des autres genres de Lebertioidea et l’étude des caractères des genres de la famille des Limnesiidae indiquent qu’une analyse cladistique complète pourrait fournir la base phylogénétique d’une révision en profondeur de la classification de ces acariens.
