If you happen to sell this book, tell me please !

Web :

Unfortunatly, lots of documents are for sale. My personnal opinion is that taxonomic documents (and especially monographies with keys) should be free, otherwise the access to taxonomy is limited to big institutions.

  • Revision of the genus Ornithocheyletia Volgin, 1964 (Acari: Cheyletidae)
  • Key to Species of the Genus Neocheyletiella (Acariformes: Cheyletidae), With Description of a New Species, JAMES W. MERTINS AND ANDRE V. BOCHKOV, 2014
