Welcome in the Superfamily of Polyaspidoidea, which is part of the Uropodina cohort.

This Superfamily includes the following Families :

  1. Dithinozerconidae
  2. Polyaspididae (illustrated here below)
  3. Trachytidae




This Polyaspididae family is not recognised as a family by all authors. The Polyaspinus genera described here below is considered by many authors as the member of the Trachytidae family.

For the time being I adopted the proposition of Peter Masan and Manual of Acarology, but my opinion may change in future and I am open to any argumentation to keep this genera in Trachytidae family.
