Euphthiracarus  Ewing, 1917

Euphthiracarus  Ewing, 1917, pp. 125, 132; Jacot, 1924a, p. go: 1930, p. 248; 1938, p. 120; Märkel, 1958, p. 486.

Ewing (1917) designated Phthiracarus flavus Ewing  (1908, p. 450, fig. 1) as type of the present genus. Jacot contributed several North American species to it. Up to now E. cribrarius  is the only species of the genus known from Europe. Pseudotritia punctulata  1), reticulata  , and vestita  (the first-mentioned two from Italy) are possibly related to Euphthiracarus  .

1) Jacot (1930, p. 250, pl. 40 figs. 60-65) describes Euphthiracarus punctulatum Jacot  , a different species, from the U.S.A..
