The species was described after specimens from Florence. I have indeed studied material from this locality, viz. the slides nos. 216/36, 41 (Florence, Cascine), and 216/37-40 (Florence, Boboli); none of these is designated as type. According to the label, slide no. 70/7 (Florence, Boboli) contains Mesoplophora michaeliana  and " Phtiracarus minimus  "; this preparation may have been part of the type-material; at the time of my visit its condition did, however, not permit of a definite identification.

The species was redescribed by Sellnick after specimens from Florence, sent to him by Berlese. It is sufficiently characterized by the above-mentioned descriptions.
