Abstract

Hawaiieupodes termophilus from the superfamily Eupodoidea is redescribed from the Hawaiian holotype and paratypes housed in the Bishop Museum, Honolulu, Hawaii. This is the first redescription since H. termophilus was originally described. Details of body morphology, i.e. idiosoma, gnathosoma, legs with setae, and solenidia are described and a morphological comparison with the genus Penthalodes of the family Penthalodidae is presented as a basis for the discussion of the systematic status of the mite Hawaiieupodes termophilus.
