Original name: Acarus piger Scopoli, 1763  ( Willmann 1931)

Synonymy: Phthiracarus contractilis Perty, 1841  : ( Ghilarov 1975).

Geographic Location: AK: Fort Richardson; Anchorage ( Hammer 1955a).

Remarks: According to Marshall et al. (1987) Jacot (1930) considered Acarus piger Scopoli, 1763  to be unrecognizable and certainly not a Phthiracarus  ; he assigned it to what is now considered the Euphthiracaroidea  .
