Gymnodamaeus taedaceus Paschoal, 1982 

Geographic Location and Habitats: AB: duff layer around Pinus contorta ( Paschoal 1982)  .

Distribution: Canada.

Remarks: This mite was not illustrated. The type specimen is crushed and most of the characters cannot be discerned. Bayartogtokh & Schatz (2009) considered G. taedaceus  to be unrecognizable, and suggested that it should be considered a species inquirendae, as do Walter et al. (2014).
