Abstract

Bat sand-mite Whantonia acutigalea Wang et Lin, 1985 is redescribed. This mite species is synonymous with W. multisetosa Goff et Easton, 1991 confirmed by the present author after his examination of both type specimens. SIF=7B-B-3-2111.0000 of this species is in conformity with the generic identification of Whartonia, but not SIF=7B-B-3-3211.0000 or SIF=7B-B-2-2111.0000 as described in both original papers. Remarks and discussion on the important characteristics of this species are given.
