Abstract

Juvenile stages of Punctoribates punctum (C. L. Koch, 1839) and P. hexagonus Berlese, 1908 are redescribed, those of P. sellnicki Willmann, 1928 are described for the first time, and both juveniles and adults of all species are illustrated. The juvenile stages of these species are similar in body shape and the number of setae on the prodorsum, gastronotum and anal, anogenital and epimeral regions, but differ in the shape and length of some prodorsal and gastronotal setae. Keys to the larvae and nymphs of these species are prepared.
