I updated the "ARACHNOLOGICAL (including Acarina) PUBLICATIONS, INTERNET DISCUSSION GROUPS / DATABASES, AND SOCIETIES OF THE WORLD" page last week. The file has been broken into several smaller pages (based on geography) so that the information will load faster. I am still missing significant data on several groups, especially the French speaking groups. Please give it a look at http://members.aol.com/jccoke/society.html and inform me of any changes that should be made.
I am doing this project as an individual (without support from any
national/international group), so your assistance will greatly help
with the task of keeping this list current.
Dear fellow acarologists,
I have just begun a post doc involving artificial feeding of Psoroptes ovis and as a sideline want to do some molecular work looking at other aspects of the biology of these mites. But, before I go ahead with some of the ideas I have I'd like to check that I won't be duplicating someone elses work. So i'd be very interested to hear from anyone out there working on Psoroptes spp. so i can find out who is doing what and where. Looking forward to hearing from you,
Cheers Jon Hogg.

Dear acarologists everywhere,
I am currently doing a PhD on the interactions of the Two-Spotted Spider
Mite (Tetranychus urticae Koch) and cotton plants. I'm mainly looking
at the responses of cotton to T. urticae damage but am also interested
in the effects of cotton (eg. chemical/morphological defenses etc.) on
I would be most interested to hear from anyone doing similar work.
Looking forward to hearing from you soon,

The Phytoseiidae As Biological Control Agents of Pest Mites and Insects: A Bibliography [1960-1994]
by Tuomas S. Kostiainen and Marjorie A. Hoy
This bibliography is intended to provide a comprehensive list of publications from 1960 to 1994 that deal with the family Phytoseiidae. To make this bibliographic list usable we have included several indices to help in locating publications on a specific topic, including a prey species index, effects of pesticides on phytoseiid index, species description index, general subject index, and author index.
This bibliography should
make valuable information available to everyone in a single, easily accessible
volume. Hopefully, it will help researchers to conduct thorough literature
reviews on their specific topics. The bibliography could also be
used as a tool to identify important areas in phytoseiid research that
have previously received minimal attention, and in this way help to direct
new research to fill the gaps in our knowledge of the phytoseiids.
The 359-page bibliography is being published by the University of Florida
and will become available in

I wonder if there are any acarologist can help me. I would like to know the taxonomical differences of twospotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae) and carmine spider mite (Tetranychus cinnabarinus). It has been said that only the specialist(?) could discriminate the two species. I think there might be the differences to make them two species. Let me know, please.

At present, I am analysing Last Glacial sediments from the Northern Andes and a huge amount of mite tarsus dominate some particular levels. All I know is that mites are active hyphae consumers, but no other information is available to me. I am especially interested in potential paleocological indications. Can anybody help me in this with informations, suggestions, literature, etc.?
Thanks in advance
