Pseudotritia reticulata  (Berlese, 1913)

Phtiracarus reticulatus Berlese  , 1913, p. 102, pl. 8 figs., 98, 97a.

Tritia reticulata  , Lombardini, 1936, p. So.

In the Berlese Collection I have seen two slides with specimens from the type-locality (Tiarno): nos. 31/22 and 216/28; the first-mentioned slide contains also other species.

The microsculpture of the tegument of the present species is reticulate; the hairs of notogaster and prodorsum are long, strong, and pointed. The sensillus is S-shaped.

Phtiracarus reticulatus  is related to Pseudotritia punctulata  . It is classified here with the genus Pseudotritia  , although the structure of the tegument resembles that of Euphthiracarus  .
