Abstract

A new species of podapolipid mite, Eutarsopolipus platyni, is described, illustrated, and compared with related species of Eutarsopolipus in the biunguis group. The species is an ectoparasite of Platynus brunneomarginatus Mannerheim collected from Alameda, Marin, and Santa Clara Counties in California, U.S.A., and Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. This is the first record of the biunguis group of Eutarsopolipus in western North America. A key to the seven species of the biunguis group of Eutarsopolipus is provided.
