Steganacarus vitrinum  (Berlese, 1913)

Hoploderma vitrinum  1) Berlese, 1913, p. 103, pl. 8 figs. 100, 100a, 100b 2).

The present species was not mentioned by Lombardini; I do not know if the type-material is indeed no more present because the species was omitted from my private catalogue when I visited Florence. The figure shows a Phthiracarid mite with convex anal covers, which points to Steganacarus  ; the structure of the tegument (although vague), the pale colour, and the shape of the notogastral hairs point to the striculus-group.

1) I do not know if vitrinum (from vitrum) is an adjective.

2) In the explanation of pl. 8 erroneous reference is made to figs. 99a, 99b.
