Neocypholaelaps wilsoni (Allred, 1970)  comb. n.

Ameroseius wilsoni  Allred, 1970: 99.

Type depository.

Bernice Pauahi Bishop Museum (Hawaii State Museum of Natural and Cultural History), Honolulu, Hawaii, USA; United States National Museum, Washington, D.C., USA; Queensland Institute of Medical Research, Brisbane, Australia; British Museum (Natural History), London, United Kingdom (not stated in the paper).

Type locality and habitat.

Papua New Guinea, Wau Creek, from the nasal cavity of rainbow lorry, Trichoglossus haematodus  ( Aves  , Psittaciformes  ).

Comparative material.

New Guinea: 1 ♀ ( BMNH, paratype) - 1963, Wau Creek, rainbow lorry, leg. P. Shanahan, Bishop Museum, BBM-NG 20425.

Remarks.

I examined a well preserved paratype of Ameroseius wilsoni  deposited at the Natural History Museum in London, concluding that it should be included in Neocypholaelaps  . The original description and illustrations given by Allred (1970) are quite adequate and do not require amendment, except for the sperm induction apparatus. In the studied specimen, spermathecal ducts (tubuli annulati) are well indicated, and they enter the sacculus foemineus independently.
