Pseudotritia  Willmann, 1919

Pseudotritia  Willmann, 1919, p. 552; Jacot, 1930, p. 242.

Willmann (1919) created Pseudotritia  as a subgenus of Tritia  , with T. (P.) monodactyla  Willmann (1919) as type; aecording to him the subgenus is characterized by the presence of only one claw at the legs. Sellnick (1923) pointed already to the fact that the strueture of the genital region and the chaetotaxy of the notogaster of Pseudotritia  resemble those of some other Tritia  species. Jacot (e.g. 1930) used indeed the strueture of the ano-genital region as main character of Pseudotritia  . Later authors followed him in this modified coneeption of the genus.

Seven of Berlese's species are listed here with the genus Pseudotritia  ; originally they have been described by him as representatives of Tritia  (1887a, 1916b, 1923) and Phtiracarus  (1904b, 1913), and one time (1913) erroneously as a Hoploderma  . Three species ( punctulata  , reticulata  , and vestita  ) are probably related to Euphthiracarus  .
