Abstract

Cassidopolipus physonota gen. nov., sp. nov. (Acari: Podapolipidae) is described from the tortoise beetle, Physonota alutacea (Boheman, 1854) (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae, Cassidinae) collected in Mexico, Honduras and Costa Rica. Of the thirty-one genera of Podapolipidae, the new genus belongs to a group of sixteen genera with adult females having just four well-developed legs. Within this group, six genera also have males with a short, mid dorsal genital capsule. Keys to the six genera are provided.
