Charadriineopicobia apricaria  sp. nov.

( Figs. 11View FIGURE 11 and 12View FIGURE 12)

Description. FEMALE (holotype). Gnathosoma  . Infracapitulum apunctate. Each medial branch of peritremes with 3 chambers, and lateral branch with 4 chambers. Stylophore densely punctate. Idiosoma  . Propodonotal shield densely punctate in anterior half; 4 apunctate patches present. Setae vi, ve and si beaded. Setae c 1 situated slightly anterior to level of setae se. Hysteronotal shields absent. Pygidial shield apunctate, pear-like in shape. Agenital and genital plates absent. Setae ag 2 situated slightly posteromedial to setae ag 3. Pseudanal setae ps 1 short but not as microsetae. Coxal fields I punctate, II –IV apunctate. Legs. Claws of legs III and IV equal in size. Apodemes I without thorn-like protuberances. Measurements. Total body length 560. Length of stylophore 120. Lengths of setae: vi 25, ve 70, si 100, se 170, c 1 195, c 2 175, d 1 140, d 2 165, e 2 140, f 1 15, f 2 30, h 1 15, h 2> 255, ag 1 100, ag 2 70, ag 3 135, ps 1 10, 3b and 4 b 25, 3c and 4 c 70, tc’III – IV 40, tc” III –IV 55. Length ratios of setae: vi: ve: si 1: 2.8: 4, f 1: f 2 1: 2, h 1: f 1 1: 1, ag 1: ag 2: ag 3 1.4: 1: 1.9, tc’III –IV: tc” III –IV 1: 1.4, 3 b: 3 c 1: 2.8.

MALE. Unknown.

Type material. Female holotype from Pluvialis apricaria (Linnaeus)  ( Charadriiformes  : Charadriidae  ), FRANCE: St. Malo, 1970, no other data.

Type deposition. Holotype in AMU.

Differential diagnosis. Female of Charadriineopicobia apricaria  sp. nov. differs from two other described species of this genus by the absence of the hysteronotal shields; presence of short pseudanal setae but not as miocrosetae, and by the position of agenital setae ag 2 which are situated posteromedial to setae ag 3. In females of Ch. calidris  and Ch. leucophaeus  , the hysteronotal shield is present; pseudanal setae are as microsetae and setae ag 2 are situated anteromedial to setae ag 3.

Etymology. The name of this species refers to specific name of the host— Pluvialis apricaria  .
