Journal of the Kansas Entomological Society
In the course of preliminary investigations of their acarine associates, large numbers of pinned bees in the Snow Entomological Museum at The University of Kansas were examined for mites. Information concerning the numbers, locations, and, insofar as possible, habits (e.g., parasitic or merely phoretic) of the latter were noted. Groups most frequently encountered were Uropodina, Acaridae, Anoetidae, Glyciphagidae, Pyemotidae and Scutacaridae. Among the several unusual forms found were the two new species of scutacarids described below.
