Type locality. China, northwestern Manchuria.  

Type specimens. According to Strandtmann & Wharton (1958), the type specimen was in the collection of K. Asanuma, but its current location is unknown.

Type host. Marmota sibirica   .

Host range. The species exploits a wide spectrum of hosts, including different species of voles, hamsters, and pikas ( Goncharova & Buyakova, 1961; Senotrusova, 1972, 1973).

Distribution. Northern and Central Asia, Pakistan, possibly Taiwan ( Dusbabek, 1966; Allred, 1969; Nikulina, 2004). In Asiatic Russia, Hg. kitanoi   has been recorded from various parts of southern Siberia, also from Yakutia and Sakhalin Island ( Davydova, 1966; Nikulina, 2004).

Remarks. Re-descriptions of Hg. kitanoi   on the basis of an expanded set of morphological characters were published by Asanuma (1951a) and Senotrusova (1972). Senotrusova (1973) described the life cycle and other peculiarities of biology of this mite. Davydova (1966) distinguished three subspecies of Hg. kitanoi   (including one that lives in nests of the European sand martin, Riparia riparia). No subsequent acarologist in Russia has accepted this division ( Senotrusova, 1972, 1987; Nikulina, 1987; Goncharova et al., 1991). Sludsky (2014) listed Hg. kitanoi   among mite species able to harbour Yersinia pestis   – the causative agent of the plague
