|Title:||FIRST RECORD OF THE MITE GENUS RACKIA (ACARI: HETEROSTIGMATINA: NEOPYGMEPHORIDAE) FROM ARCTIC RUSSIA WITH DESCRIPTION OF A NEW SPECIES|
|Authors:||Khaustov A. A.|
|Abstract:||The genus Rackia Mahunka, 1975 (Acari: Pygmephoroidea: Neopygmephoridae) is recorded from Russia for the first time. A new species, Rackia curculionoides sp. n. is described from soil of the arctic Vaigach Island, the north of Eastern Siberia. A key to species of the genus Rackia is provided. It was suggested that the elongated gnathosomal capsule in Rackia curculionoides sp. n. and other species of Rackia is a result of homoplasy.|
