Abstract

The first description of adult and deutonymph of Neotrombicula vulgaris, experimentally reared from larvae collected in Poland from Apodemus agrarius and Myodes glareolus, is complemented with DNA barcode sequence. Morphometric data on larvae, extending the knowledge of intraspecific variation, are also provided. Active post-larval forms of N. vulgaris differ from other species of Neotrombicula in the structure of palpal and idiosomal setae. Information on phenology and seasonality of parasitism of larvae is given.
