EUPHTHIRACARIDAE   Jacot, 1930

In 1923 Jacot created a subfamily Tritiinae   ; because the name Tritia   is preoccupied, and because Jacot later considered the group a tribe, he replaced the name in 1930 (p. 214) by Euphthiracarini   .

Grandjean (1954) distinguished the families Oribotriidae   and Pseudotritiidae   ; the last-mentioned family also contains the genus Euphthiracarus   , so that the name Pseudotritiidae   must be replaced by Euphthiracaridae   .
