Berlese described this american form as a variety of B. brevis Berlese  (non Michael). I studied slide no 83/10 from Lake City, Florida, which probably is the type. This specimen is only slightly different from B. italicus  and I agree with Jacot that it must be considered a subspecies of B. italicus  ; Forsslund (in litt.) kindly informed me that he is of the same opinion.
