|Title:||THE LIFE-CYCLE OF POMERANTZIA PHILIPPINA SP. N. (PROSTIGMATA: POMERANTZIIDAE) DESCRIBED FROM THE PHILIPPINES|
|Authors:||Bochkov A. V.|
|Abstract:||Herein we describe all active stages, including a prelarva with fully articulated legs, of the new species Pomerantzia philippina (Prostigmata: Eleutherengona: Pomerantziidae). This is the first description of a prelarva in the family and the first known representative of the family from the Philippines. Adult of the new species differs from 3 other species of the genus by the presence of 12 setae on both tarsi III and IV (vs. 11). Additionally, it differs from P. charlesi Baker, 1949 by the presence of 9 setae on tibiae IV (vs. 8), from P. benhami Price, 1974 by the absence of the reticulate pattern on the propodonotal shield, and from P. subterranea Fan et Chen, 2005 by the presence of 19 setae on tarsi I (vs. 18).|
