Again, here I am with a request. Some years ago, probably mid seventies, I read an article about the use of mite population species composition in the soil under a corpse in determining the age of a corpse. Has anyone of you an idea where I could look for the title and author of this publication? Please let me know.

I have a vestigial paper by G.S. Taboada on "Sinopsis de la espeleofauna cubana", and I badly need the full citation data. Could anyone help me?
Some people planning to visit Australia for the International Congress of Acarology may wish to do some collecting while they are here. I would remind these people once more that collecting in National Parks and other protected areas can not be done legally unless a permit has been issued by the appropriate wildlfe protection agency. Penalties for collecting or exporting Australian wildlife (including mites) without a permit can be very heavy.
Obtaining these permits can be difficult and complicated, and must not be left until after you arrive in Australia. Obtaining permits is the responsibility of individual collectors.
Further information can be obtained from Environment Australia, at their WWW site :
Collectors are also reminded that if any new species are described frm material collected in Australia, the type specimens must be lodged in an Australian public collection. The Australian National Insect Collection or one of the State Museums would be appropriate for mites.
For information on the 10th International Congress of Acarology, July 1998, go to

I know it is out of print. But can anyone suggest where I might be able to buy a copy of Asher E Treat "Mites of Moths and Butterflies" ?

I'm a PhD-student and working on housedust mites. I have difficulties to get a good fixation for transmission-electron-microscopy. The fixationmedia I use (glutaraldehyde and osmiumtetraoxide) don't penetrate the cuticula in an acceptable way. I would be very glad, if someone can give me advice concerning this matter. Please send your replies directly to my e-mail address: email@example.com
Thanks in advance

I should greatly appreciate for any informations (including literature cites) on nidicole mites living in the nests of the pollinate bees.
Many thanks for Your attention.

I'm new on this list, I'm a french entomologist. I join the acarology
list because I start a study about the Ixodoidae and the diseases that
the ticks transmit. I've found the determination key, the morphology, the
biology and the diseases which are transmitted. But I haven't found anything
about the ecology of the ticks. So I have questions :
1- What are the list of the ticks in the ecosystem? can anyone sent me reference book ?
2- What are the reasons of the increase of the tick's population?
3- The illness of Lyme : is it present in England?
Please, excuse me if my English is bad, and could you correct me if it is very bad.
thanks a lot.
We have recently found mites that we have not seen before. They were on a domestic cat, but did not seem to be causing any clinical problems for the animal. The mites appear to be adapted to living on the hairs of the cat.
Could anyone suggest a taxonomist who would be interested and willing to identify samples?
Thanks in advance for the help.
