Dear all,

I am working on a revision of the oribatid genus Eremaeozetes. Recently
I found in the  Zoological Record that an Eremaeozetes species has been
described from Himalaya:
Eremaeozetes himalayensis Sanyal, 1992, p. 277, figs.
in Sanyal, A.K.(1992): Oribatid mites (Acari). -
In A.K.Ghosh (ed.). Fauna of West Bengal. Part 3 (Arachnida and Acari).
Zoological Survey of India, Calcutta.

I was not able to get a copy of this description. Can someone help me.
Thank you very much in advance.

Subject:  Need help with mite SEM procedure

List members:

    Sorry to be a bother with such a trivial question but this is not my
field.  I have tried and failed to get decent scanning electron
micrographs of house dust mites.  What is proper sample preparation
procedure to avoid dessication.

Dear Collegues,

We have made a small experiment with Hemileus initialis to see the
food preference of this mite for different fungi species. I would be
grateful for any papers related to food spectrum of Hemileus

Best wishes

Subject:  Mites in the Rainforest Poster

Hi All,

In cooperation with the Australian Biological Resources Study, Heather
Proctor and I have produced a poster on some of Australia's diverse
rainforest acarofauna.  It's called, somewhat unimaginitively, "Mites in
the Rainforest", and is available from:
