Abstract:
Three species of the family Porohalacaridae are known to occur in Britain. Viets (1928) has listed the species, Turk (1953) shows no additions. In July 1953 a series of seventeen mites was taken from a small sample of bottom deposit which was accidentally brought up in a plankton net from a depth of fifteen or twenty feet near Crow Holme in Windermere. There was a single specimen each of Limnohalacarus wackeri (Walter) and Porohalacarus alpinus (Thor.). The latter species represents an addition to the British list. The remaining fifteen specimens belong to an undescribed species of Lobohala- carus apparently allied to L. gallicus (Migot) ; the female of L. gallicus has recently been described by Angelier (1952). The specimens from Windermere differ from L. gallicus in several important respects.
