Genus Hydrogamasus Berlese, 1892 

Hydrogamasus Berlese, 1892c: 5  .

Hydrogamasus  .— Vitzthum, 1931a: 142; 1943: 756; Baker & Wharton, 1952: 73; Ryke, 1962b: 160; Hirschmann, 1966b: 7; Lee, 1970: 64.

Hydrogamasus  ( Hydrogamasus  ).— Hirschmann, 1966b: 10.

Type species: Gamasus littoralis  G. & R. Canestrini, 1881, by subsequent designation ( Berlese, 1903a).

Berlese (1892c) described the genus Hydrogamasus  to include two species, Gamasus littoralis  G. & R. Canestrini, 1881 and H. giardi ( Berlese & Trouessart, 1889)  . Berlese (1903a) then designated G. littoralis  as the type species of Hydrogamasus  . However, Oudemans (1902b) felt that G. littoralis  was a junior synonym of G. salinus Laboulbene, 1851  . Vitzthum (1943), Baker & Wharton (1952), and Ryke (1962b) also said that G. littoralis  is a junior synonym of G. salinus  . Lee (1970) then found that G. littoralis  is not a synonym of G. salinus  . He placed G. littoralis  in the Ologamasidae  as the type species of Hydrogamasus  , and G. salinus  in Pergamasus  ( Parasitidae  ). Oudemans (1936, page 163) also found that G. salinus  was correctly placed in Pergamasus  . The type species of Hydrogamasus  is therefore Gamasus littoralis  , as originally designated by Berlese (1903a).
