Mite classification

 

This classification shows the placement of all 90 taxonomic entities (all but one are genera) used in this tool. It reflects the latest ideas about the higher-level taxonomic hierarchy of mites. Note that the ranking or naming of categories above superfamily level may change in the future as the relationship between mite lineages is better understood. See this classification for a full listing of all mite genera, species, and subspecies that are associated with bees.
