Genus Androlaelaps Berlese 

Laelaps (Androlaelaps) Berlese, 1903a: 14  .

Type species Laelaps (Iphis) hermaphrodita Berlese, 1887  ; by original designation.

Diagnosis. The diagnosis of Androlaelaps  used here is based on that of Evans & Till (1966) [in part] and Shaw (2014).

Remarks. Until now, eight species considered to belong to Androlaelaps  have been reported from Egypt: Androlaelaps casalis ( Berlese, 1887)  , A. aegypticus Hafez, Elbadry & Nasr, 1982  , A. zaheri Hafez, Elbadry & Nasr, 1982  , A. reticulus Hafez, Elbadry & Nasr, 1982  , A. kifli Metwally & Ibrahim, 1985  , A. (Haemolaelaps) orientalis Ibrahim & Abdel-Samad, 1990  , A. lehfeni Oyoun & El Kady, 1995  ; A. bayoumi Basha & Yousef, 2000  . Basha & Yousef (2000) provided a key to the Egyptian species of Androlaelaps  , but the species A. bayoumi  , A. kifli  and A. lehfeni  were not included in their key. We had no opportunity to examine the type material of these species.
