Rhizoglyphini

 Bulb mites Rhizoglyphus robini, from here.

Belongs within: Rhizoglyphinae.
Contains: Schwiebea.

The Rhizoglyphini are a group of acarid mites characterised by the lack of seta aa on the first tarsus. Klimov (1998) divided this lineage into two tribes, Rhizoglyphini and Thyreophagini, based on the appearance of seta ba on the first two tarsi (stout and spine-like in ‘Rhizoglyphini’, weak and stick-like in ‘Thyreophagini’) but these divisions were not shown as reciprocally monophyletic by OConnor (2001). Species of the genus Rhizoglyphus inhabit bulbs, tubers and other plant tissues.
