The status of Androlaelaps rotundus (Fonseca) (Acari: Gamasida: Laelapidae) is solidified by designating a lectotype and series of paralectotypes based on museum specimens. These specimens were studied from the Acari Collection of the Instituto Butantan in São Paulo, Brazil. New morphological details given here suggest that a species of Necromys Ameghino may be the host of the type series of A. rotundus.
