Description of the Bee Mite Genus Diadasiopus

Notes. Known from phoretic deutonymphs, are adults collected but not described. Molecular phylogenetic analysis calls for reconsidering morphology-based placement of this genus in Horstiinae. The following apomorphic character states joining Diadasiopus with Horstiinae should be re-evaluated: the rounded subcapitular remnant and striate pattern on the dorsal idiosoma (OConnor, 1997).
