Tarsonemidae of China (Acari: Prostigmata): annotated and illustrated catalogue and bibliography.

LIN, J.-Z. & ZHANG, Z.-Q. 


This catalogue provides information for 93 species belonging to 15 genera in three subfamilies of the Tarsonemidae known from China. For each taxon, the following information is provided (1) synonyms, (2) bibliographic information and (3) notes (in parenthesis) indicating the content of the papers cited. Illustrations are included for most species described from China in journals not commonly available in libraries outside China. It is noted that Cheylotarsonemus minutus Tseng & Lo, 1980 is preoccupied by Lupotarsonemus minutus Attiah, 1970, both now placed in Tarsonemus. Tarsonemus brevicorpus Lin nom. nov. is proposed as a replacement name for minutus Tseng & Lo.

Key words: Acari, Tarsonemidae, catalogue, illustrations, bibliography
