Abstract

Tetrapolipus anoplophorae sp. nov. (Acari: Podapolipidae) is described from Anoplophora lucipor Newman (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) from Luzon, Bataan, Limay Province, Philippines and compared with seven species of Tetrapolipus Berlese in the Eastern Hemisphere. This is the first species of Tetrapolipus described from Anoplophora. No parasitic mites were found on Asian longhorned beetles (ALB), Anoplophora glabripennis (Motschulsky), collected in China or on A. glabripennis collected in the USA. Examination of additional species of Anoplophora failed to yield parasitic podapolipid mites. A key to species of Tetrapolipusis provided and genera of beetle families that have podapolipid mites are compared with genera of podapolipid parasites of these families.
