The mites of the Poecilochirus carabi sibling species complex (Mesostigmata: Parasitidae) live in close association with burying beetles of the genus Nicrophorus (Coleoptera: Silphidae). Crossbreeding experiments and an electrophoretic analysis show that two species of this complex described to live on N. vespilloides and N. vespillo also occur on the sympatric species N. humator and N. investigator. The so-called species P-vo is abundant on N. vespillo, whereas species P-vs is dominant on the other three hos…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
