Niemi, R., Uusitalo, M. & Lintinen, P. 2002: Nanorchestes Topsent and
Trouessart, 1890 and Eupodes Koch, 1836 (Acari: Prostigmata) from Vestfjella
mountain range, Antarctica. - Entomol. Fennica 13: 236-240.
Two terrestrial prostigmatid mites were found from the Audunfjellet nunatak, Vestfjella mountain range, in Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica during the FINNARP expedition in Austral summer 1997/1998. The mites are close to, if not identical to, Nanorchestes bifurcatus Strandtmann, 1967 and Eupodes tottanfjella Strandtmann, 1967, also earlier reported from the area, but identification cannot be verified by using the published descriptions. Samples were also collected from an unnamed nunatak and the Basen nunatak, but these were miteless by chance.
