Abstract

New data are provided on larvae of terrestrial Parasitengona mites parasitizing spiders. Larvae of Erythraeidae and Trombidiidae are recorded as parasites of spiders representing five families. Members of Philodromidae and Tetragnathidae (Pachygnatha clercki Sundevall 1823) are reported as hosts of Trombidioidea for the first time. The available information indicates that some Trombidiidae have a narrow host range with affinity to spiders, whereas the Erythraeidae are more opportunistic parasites.
