Corynophrya abyssalis Bartsch & Dovgal, 2010


Corynophrya abyssalis Bartsch & Dovgal, 2010 

Records on halacarid mites: Bartsch & Dovgal (2010) reported this species from the Mid-Аtlantic Ridge, station Аshadze, 4087 m depth on Copidognathus nautilei Bartsch, 1997  .

Remarks: Bartsch & Dovgal (2010) commented that suctorians mentioned by Bartsch (1994) from halacarid mites of a nearby hydrothermal vent area (Mid-Аtlantic Ridge, 3500 m) have similar conspicuous longitudinal ribs but differ from C. abyssalis  by the larger size.
