New localities of zerconid mites from Turkey (Acari, Zerconidae)

Abstract :

In this study, we reported the presence of 20 zerconid mite species belonging to 2 genera (Prozercon and Zercon) from Amasya, Balıkesir, Bolu, Bursa, Eskişehir and Isparta provinces of Turkey. Specimens were collected between 2011 and 2015. Distributions of species within Turkey are presented as a catalogue of provincial records. Unknown immature stages (deutonymphs and protonymphs) of some known zerconid mites and males of Zercon ignobilis are here recorded for the first time. Several species known previously from only a few localities in Turkey have been shown to have much wider distributions in the country. In addition, the habitats of these species found in the provinces were given
