of North American mammals (Acarina: Sarcoptiformes, Glycyphagidae).
Description of two new species (Hypopi
) of genus Acotyledon Oudemans (Acarina: Acaridae) from Pakistan.
This study resulted in discovery of two new (Hypopi
) species of genus Acotyledon viz.
At necropsy, a large number of deutonymphs (hypopi
) of the hypoderatid mite (Hypodectes propus [Acarina: Hypoderatidae]), were found in the subcutis and in the fasciae of the adipose tissue in the pectoral muscle and abdominal regions.
The hypopi have evolved morphological adaptations, such as attachment devices, to aid in phoresy.
The hypopi of the Hemisarcoptes cooremani (Acari: Hemisarcoptidae), formerly regarded as a phoretic species of the beetle Chilocorus cacti, has been shown to acquire fluids from the hemolymph of its beetle host suggesting a transition between a phoretic and a truly parasitic association (Houck & Cohen 1995).
This would involve taking preventative action against hypopi
leaping from one culture vial to another.
Hypopi were mounted on the microscopic slides permanently in Hoyer's medium.
KEY TO SPECIES OF GENUS CALOGLYPHUS BERLESE FROM PAKISTAN (HYPOPI)
The immobile, immature hypopi
were individually encapsulated, mostly in adipose tissue, and evoked only a mild inflammatory infiltration of predominately macrophages with some heterophilic granulocytes.
A comprehensive survey of different stored grains and stored products from Gujranwala district resulted in discovery of two new species (Hypopi
) viz., Acotyledon kamokiensis and A.
Two new species (Hypopi
) of genus Histiostoma (Acari: Histiostomatidae) from Pakistan.
