Tropacarus  Ewing, 1917, p. 130.

Calhoplophora  Berlese, 1923, p. 257.

Calhoplophora  Berlese (1923) has the same type ( Hoplophora carinata C. L. Koch  ) as Tropacarus  Ewing (1917); for this reason it must be placed in the synonymy of the last-mentioned genus. Ewing did not know Tropacarus carinatus  , but founded his generic diagnosis on the descriptions of the species. Ewing and Berlese nientioned no other representatives of the genus; I added Hoplophora pulcherrima Berlese  , and Phthiracarus (Trachyhoplophora) brevipilus Berlese  .
