One should note that there are a number of errors in nomenclature in the
book by Hughes.  Also, the family and generic classifications of some
groups of Astigmata have changed notably since the publication of this
work. - Barry

So many mites, so little time!

Subject:  lactic acid substitution

Dear Doctor,

I have interest in acarology.  I just want to know, whether we can change lactic acid to other acids (for example: acetic acid and howmany %) for house dust mite examination procedure (for floating and separating the house dust mites from other components of house dust). 
My second question is, how can we differentiate this mites from other components of dust using naked eyes or using  magnifying glass?
Your informations are very worthy for me and I hope for these.
Thank you very much.

Subject: 	Mite imaging software

Hello All,

I'm looking at ways of counting large numbers of mites (and collembola)
by using computer imaging technology. Does anyone have any experience
with this?
I get about 300 mites per sample after Tullgren funnel extraction. It
is very tedious to count each mite individually, so I'm looking at ways
of using imaging techniques. So far, I have the problem of resolving
individual mites when they cross over one another.

Thanks for your attention,
Martin Hoyle.

Subject: 	Re: AF Millidge

Thank you, Mark. The matter is not identification, but one of a name change 
for a genus of spider Millidge described in 1991. The name he used, 
Malkinella, was already preoccupied by a genus of featherwing beetle (a 
group I work on) from Africa, described in 1960. I need to find a spider 
worker to change the name of the spider genus Malkinella to something else 
in order to clean up the mess. Millidge would have been the logical choice 
to change the name, but now it will have to be done by somebody else. I'm a 
beetle worker but would be happy to coauthor the paper with a spider worker 
if needed. I know a few arachnid specialists and will contact them, too.
