Superorder Parasitiformes » Order Mesostigmata » Suborder Monogynaspida » Hyporder Dermanyssiae » Family Ameroseiidae » Genus Ameroseius
Seius echinatus C. L. Koch, 1839 (= Acarus corbicula Sowerby, 1806 = Seius muricatus Koch, 1839)
Kleemannia Oudemans is considered either as a junior synonym (Halliday, 1997) or as a valid genus (Evans and Till, 1979). Here we follow the most recent works by considering Kleemannia a junior synonym of Ameroseius. However, below we give diagnostic character states of Kleemannia to differentiate it from the typical Ameroseius.
