Abstract

The morphology of the postembryonic stages of a new quill mite species, Chenophila platyrhynchos sp. nov., parasitising the Mallard Anas platyrhynchos (Linnaeus) (Aves: Anseriformes) in Poland is described in detail. This species is morphologically very similar to Ch. kanduli Bochkov known from Anas querquedula Linnaeus in Russia and differs from it by the ornament of a propodonotal shield, the number of chambers in the lateral branch of the peritremes, and the lengths of the propodonotal setae.
