Podapolipidae

Dorsum of male Eutarsopolipus acanthomus, from Walter et al. (2009).

Belongs within: Eleutherengonides.

The Podapolipidae are a group of mites including both internal and external parasites of other arthropods (Walter et al. 2009).

Characters (from Walter et al. 2009): Cheliceral stylophore consolidated with subcapitulum to form a capsulate gnathosoma; palpi reduced. Females typically with 1–3 pairs of legs; legs IV, if present, 5-segmented and more slender than legs II–III. Males with 3 or 4 pairs of legs; legs IV, if present, 5-segmented and inserted ventrally or reduced and inserted dorsally; male genital capsule caudal or dorsal in position.
