Checklist and Bibliography of the fauna of Acari (Arachnida) in Bulgaria

Acarological studies in Bulgaria start in 1907 (water mites) and 1921 (terrestrial mites). So far 1673 species of Acari (Acariformes and Parasitiformes) have been reported (252 Acaridida, 420 Oribatida, 616 Prostigmata, 344 Mesostigmata and 44 Ixodida). They belong to 630 genera and 213 families. The real number of mites species living in Bulgaria is expected to exceed 3000. The checklist is preceded by a short review of the history of the acarological research and is followed by a bibliography of 477 titles. The systematic position of many taxa is made up-to-date and many names are introduced for the first time in Bulgarian acarological literature. Most Bulgarian acarologists either died, or retired and are no more fully active. New acarologists are needed.
