Dermanyssus longipes Berlese &Trouessart, 1889  

Dermanyssus longipes Berlese & Trouessart, 1889: 128   .

Published record. Trnavská Pahorkatina Hills: 8 ♀♀, 12 August 1982, Budmerice Village, Passer domesticus   ( Roy et al. 2009 a). We believe this record is based on a misidentification of D. hirundinis   .

Remarks. The original description of Dermanyssus longipes   by Berlese & Trouessart (1889) is not adequate for accurate recognition of this species (type locality " France "). The type specimens deposited in the Berlese Collection at Florence are not suitable for a detailed study ( Evans & Till 1962; Moss 1978), so most modern authors have considered this species as a “species incertae sedis” and not included it in their keys to identification. However, Roy et al. (2009 a) assigned some specimens to D. longipes   on the basis of two morphological features (anal shield "slightly more" elongated and subrectangular, dorsal shield with a subapical shrinkage and rounded posterior margin) and geographic locality. Roy et al. (2009 a) based their concept of this species on specimens from France, and from M. Mrciak’s specimens from Slovakia, in the collection of P. Fenďa at Comenius University. We have examined the Mrciak specimens (labelled as Dermanyssus passerinus   ), and can confirm that they belong to D. hirundinis   . Therefore we do not follow the concept of D. longipes   as given by Roy et al. (2009 a).
