Does anyone in the list know what group or genera of mite this is? I should have some macrophotographs of this observation soon in slide and print format. If the images come out OK, I can e-mail low resolution jpegs to whomever wants them. Best wishes- jim Jim Occi Cranford, New Jersey USA

I am looking for a specialist of water mites.
I have some specimens collected in European caves.
Can someone identify those specimens or give me names of specialists ?
Thank you very much in advance.

From: "Ryan Rego" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: <email@example.com> Date: 7/16/03 12:14a.m. Subject: DNA extraction from lice Hi, I have a Master's student in the lab who has been unsuccesful in DNA extraction of lice that he has been obtaining from different parts of the world. He needs to identify symbionts within the specimens obtained and he generally obtains 5 to 6 specimens for each lice species. He has worked with kits as well as with classical DNA extraction methods with some success, but if anybody knows of some foolproof method or a paper which might help him out, I would be thankful if you could e-mail the information over to me. Thank you. Yours faithfully, Ryan Rego

From: "Campbell, Scott" <Scott.Campbell@co.suffolk.ny.us> To: <email@example.com> Date: 7/30/03 10:54a.m. Subject: Male Dermacentor and Amblyomma Hi Everyone, I would appreciate some clarification. Do male Dermacentor variabilis and male Amblyomma americanum attach and slowly or slightly feed on humans or other mammals? If so, is there any risk to mammals acquiring either Rickettsia rickettsii, from D. variabilis, or Ehrlichia chaffeensis from A. americanum? Any assistance would be much appreciated.
