Androlaelaps crowei Jameson  

Type host: Onychomys leucogaster arcticeps (Rhoades)   from Meade Co., Kansas.

Deposition, host records, and locality: HWML 101687 and 91998, O. leucogaster   /Arapahoe 2012; HWML 91999, O. leucogaster   /Arapahoe 2012; HWML 92002, O. leucogaster   /Arapahoe 2012; HWML 92003, O. leucogaster   /Arapahoe 2012; HWML 92004, O. leucogaster   /Arapahoe 2012; HWML 92020 and 101700, O. leucogaster   /Ackley 2013; HWML 101713, 101714, 101715, 101717, 101718, and 92027, O. leucogaster   /Ackley 2013; HWML 101721, O. leucogaster   /Ackley 2013; HWML 92044, O. leucogaster   / Grama Grass 2013.

Remarks: Androlaelaps crowei   was collected in relatively high numbers, infesting the grasshopper mouse, O. leucogaster   . Our specimens are morphologically similar, but slightly smaller than the holotype described and illustrated by Jameson (1947a). All of the mites of this species appear to be specifically associated with neotomine rodents of the genus Onychomys   .
