Tectotydeus demeyerei (Oudemans, 1929)

  • Type locality: on Plecotus auritus (brown long-eared bat), Bodegraven (The Netherlands)
  • Holotype: RMNH, ♀
Naturalis Biodiversity Center - RMNH.ART.1360 - Tydeus demeyerei (Oudemans) - Mites - Collection Anthonie Cornelis Oudemans


  • Tydeus demeyerei, original combination published by Oudemans (:1929 478), combination handwritten on Oudemans' slide and used by Eyndhoven (1944: 41) and Buitendijk (1945: 322)
  • Tectotydeus demeyerei, subsequent combination used by Oudemans (1937)


  • Described as a tydeid mite by Oudemans (1929).
  • Valid species listed by Sepasgosarian (1997: 15)
  • Listed as ‘‘ancient species’’ by Kaźmierski (1998: 357).
  • Misspelled ("demeyeri") by Buitendijk (1945: 322) and André (2005).
  • According to the short descripion by Oudemans (1929) and the adjacent figure, the prodorsum is procurved, which implies that demeyerei does not belong to Tydeidae as defined by André & Fain (2000). The only one slide in Oudemans' collection is in bad a state (André, 2005: 991). Its familial status is dubious but it might be a Tydaeolinae (Procurvata sensu André & Fain (2000: 438)).
