Moved from podothrombidiids.

Moved from Mites and Ticks.

I've been trying to figure this thing out for years. Got the specimen? It's certainly a trmbidioid…. but which one…

Yes, I saved it for you
along with a couple others. I'll email you later this evening for an address.

Thanks for the specimens! They are clearly Podothrombium, an interesting group that is only reported from the western coast, although it is well-known among specialists that they occur all over. Anyway, those specimens will be added to a publication I am working on for the group. And of course, now we have useful Bugguide pages! :) Thanks again!

You are quite welcome
glad I could contribute to your research.
