Abstract

The Tarsonemus minimax species-group is established for bark beetle commensals of the genus Tarsonemus Canestrini and Fanzago, 1876. T. minimax Vitzthum 1926 is redescribed, and two new species, T. terebrans and T. typographi n. spp., are described and illustrated. A diagnostic key to the species is supplied. The systematic status of the species-group is discussed. Biogeography and associations with insect hosts and fungi are reviewed.
