Annotation:

In total 11 species of mites were revealed to be phoretic on Pityogenes chalcographus L. in a spruce-pine forest near Tyumen, Western Siberia, Russia: Uroobovella ipidis (Vitzthum, 1923) (Urodinychidae), Trichouropoda polytricha (Vitzthum, 1923) (Trematuridae), Pleuronectocelaeno barbara Athias-Henriot, 1959 (Celaenopsidae), Schizosthetus sp. (Parasitidae), Dendrolaelaps (Ipidodendrolaelaps) quadrisetosimilis Hirschmann, 1960 (Digamasellidae), Proctolaelaps fiseri Samsinak, 1960 (Melicharidae), Siculobata (Paraleius) leontonycha (Berlese, 1910) (Scheloribatidae), Histiostoma piceae Scheucher, 1957 (Histiostomatidae), Pyemotes dryas (Vitzthum, 1923) (Pyemotidae), Heterotarsonemus coleopterorum (Schaarschmidt, 1959), and Tarsonemus bistridentati Magowski and Khaustov, 2006 (Tarsonemidae). The hyperphoresy by deutonymphs of Histiostoma picea and Trichouropoda polytricha on other phoretic mites on bark beetles are recorded.
