Redescription of Tenuipalpus coyacus De Leon (Trombidiformes: Tenuipalpidae), with a discussion on the ontogeny of leg setae
MetadataShow full item record
Tenuipalpus coyacus was described from female, male and deutonymph specimens collected on oil palm (Arecaceae) from San Blas, Nayarit, Mexico. In this article, we redescribe the female, male and immatures of T. coyacus from type specimens and newly collected material in Brazil. Also included are additional novel data (e.g. dorsal and ventral ornamentation, leg setae and setal measurements) in a standardized format. In addition, we provide details of the patterns of ontogenetic setal additions for each life stage of this species.
