Remarks.

Actinoseius  Berlese, 1916 was originally introduced as a subgenus of the genus Epicriopsis  Berlese, 1916, considering Epicriopsis (Actinoseius) terrificans  , then described, as the type species. Castagnoli and Pegazzano (1985) did not include E. (A.) terrificans  in their Catalogue of the Berlese Acaroteca. Hallan (2005) included Actinoseius  in his compiled list of pachylaelapid genera. Original description of this taxon and of its type species is absolutely useless for species and subgenus recognition. Thus, the reason leading Hallan (2005) to include it in Pachylaelapidae  is not clear. Most likely, this species could be based on a specimen mounted onto slide No. 162/9 of the Berlese Collection in Florence, and labelled Ameroseius terrificans  (nomen nudum). That specimen and, according to the original description, the type specimen of E. (A.) terrificans  were collected in La Plata, Argentina.
