New species of parasitic fungi occurring on mites (Acarina)

Tomasz Majewski, Jezry Wiśniewski


The authors describe three new fungi, external parasites of mites occurring in galleries of bark beetles: Thaxteriola moseri, Acariniola subbasalipunctata and A. basalipunctata. The last two have been included in a new genus Acariniola, differing from other representatives of the group Thaxteriolae by a smaller number of cells constituting the thallus (only two) and a penetration pore separated from the foot.
