Zetzellia erzincanica sp. nov., an intermediate species between the genera Zetzellia and Agistemus (Acari, Stigmaeidae)

Meryem Bingül, Salih Doğan

Abstract


A new species of the genus Zetzellia Oudemans, Z. erzincanica sp. nov. (Stigmaeidae) collected from Erzincan, Turkey, is described. This is a species between the genera Zetzellia Oudemans and Agistemus Summers. The new species has characteristic features of Zetzellia, but some paratypes resemble Agistemus in that setae d2 are partly or completely situated on the central hysterosomal shield. Some variations and abnormalities were observed in this species.
