Steganacarus remigerus  (Berlese, 1923)

Phthiracarus (Trachyhoplophora) remigerus Berlese  , 1923, p. 258.

The present species is related to Steganacarus striculum  . The notogaster shows similar pits. The notogastral hairs are thickened towards the end, although the top is rounded or somewhat pointed. The sensillus is curved, slightly thickened towards the end.

The original slides are still present in the Berlese Collection, viz. the nos. 208/15 (type), 208/16-18; the specimens originate from "Somalia italiana, Foci del Giuba''.
