Dear Colleagues,

After many years of devoted service, Michel Naudo will be retiring from his
post at the Paris Natural History Museum at the end of this week. I will be
taking over the curation of the mite collections, so requests for loans or
information should be addressed to me in future. Any other mail will be
forwarded to Michel.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Judson

 Subject: Sellnick & Vitzthum
 Date: Thu, 26 Aug 1999 15:05:47 +0100
 

Hi everybody,
A colleague of my institute prepares an overview of the history of soil zoology
of
Austria/Europe. I'm the only acarologist here and so he asked me to find out the
dates of birth and death of two German (?) acarologists, both active in the
first
part of our century:

Max Sellnick (oribatologist) and
H. Graf Vitzthum (general acarologist, as far as I know)

Can anybody help? Where can I find information of this kind?
Thanks in advance, Alex.

To: acarology@nhm.ac.uk
 

As an arachnologist specializing in spiders I was unable to answer a recent
question from an experienced birder who described an unusual tick.  She
described a tick-like animal with a bright red body and with a white central
mark.  I inquired as to if it might have been a velvet mite, but she seems
to think it was a tick.  This was near the mouth of the Santa Ynez river in
California.  I am attempting to get a specimen, but currently I only have
this vague description.  Does anyone know of any bright colored ticks?

 Subject: request for locating a paper
 Date: Sun, 29 Aug 1999 21:49:30 PDT

Dear Colleagues:

I have had much difficulty in locating the paper:

Fain, A. 1996. A new genus and species of Erythraeinae (Acari: Erythraeidae)
from Rwanda. Ana. Inst. Biol. Univ. Nac. Auto. Mex. S. Zool. 67: 251257.

This paper appeared in an obscure journal, which I have no access here. I
wrote to Prof A. Fain for a reprint, but have heard nothing back. As he is
at quite an advanced age now, I am not sure if he is still active.

If you are able to help me to get a copy of this paper, please write to me.

Thank you very much in advance.

Best wishes,

Zhi-Qiang Zhang, Acarologist

 Subject: thanks for replies to my request for Fain's paper
 Date: Mon, 30 Aug 1999 14:13:45 PDT

Dear Colleagues:

I am so delighted to receive so many warm offers for help and a copy of
Fain's paper that I requested is already on the way to me, kindly sent by
Prof Flechtmann of Brazil. I am grateful to all who replied - sorry that I
will not reply to everyone of you individually as there are so many of you.
It is the first time I realize personally how useful a facility this list is
since I set it up in early 1995.

For those who are interested, Dr Alex Fain, now 85, is well and still active
his acarological quest, but is just out of office for period of time.

Thank you and best wishes,

Zhi-Qiang Zhang
