Recharacterization of Gymnodamaeoidea and erection of Plateremaeoidea (Acari, Oribatei), with key to families and genera

Abstract

The present paper deals with the recharacterization of the Gymnodamaeoidea and the erection of Plateremaeoidea n. grad. (Acari, Oribatei). Gymnodamaeidae Grandjean, Aleurodamaeidae Paschoal & Johnston, and Idiodamaeidae Paschoal are recognised under the Gymnodamaeoidea. Plateremaeidae Tragardh, Pheroliodidae Paschoal, Nooliodidae Paschoal, Hammeriellidae Paschoal, Lyrifissellidae Paschoal, Pedrocortesellidae Paschoal, Licnodamaeidae Grandjean and Licnobelbidae Grandjean are included in Plateremaeoidea. A key to the families and genera of Gymnodamaeoidea and Plateremaeoidea is also provided.
