Abstract

An oribatid mite species found infesting the farmed eels Anguilla australis and A. dieffenbachii (Anguillidae) in New Zealand was identified as Hydrozetes lemnae in the family Hydrozetidae (Acari: Sacoptiformes). All post larval stages have been detected and identified. The potential significance of the mites to the farmed eels is discussed.
