Remarks. Gaeolaelaps queenslandicus  was originally described as a species of Androlaelaps  , based on a single specimen collected from litter at Taringa, Queensland, Australia ( Womersley, 1956). G. queenslandicus  has been recorded many times, from North America, Europe, Asia, and Africa. Zaher (1986) recorded this species from soil in Egypt for the first time and we have had the opportunity to examine specimens to confirm this identification. Our newly collected material agrees very well with the description given by Costa (1966) with modifications by Nemati et al. (2018b). The species is recognised by the presence of 37 pairs of simple setae on the dorsal shield (with variation, sometimes 38 pairs) (Nemati et al., 2018), with three-tined palp tarsal claw, peritreme long (reaching to coxa I) and with spine-like setae on femur and tarsus II.
