I recently had a request for an image of Polyaspinus tuberculatus Womersley, 1961 and I realised that my Polyaspididae, I mean Trachytidae (current usage), were not in very good nick. Actually, the mite in question is now Acroseius tuberculatus (Womersley, 1961) too.
The short answer is that I do have images of what appears to be an undescribed species of Acroseius and also a probably undescribed species of Polyaspinus from Queensland. I also have an undescribed Polyaspinus from Alberta (no image yet) and a species of Trachytes that is probably described from Oregon.
All of these mites are interesting for several reasons, but I will have to wait to post on that – I’m being dragged off on family duties.
