Cook American Entomological Institute Ann Arbor Wikipedia Citation Please see Wikipedia's template documentation for further citation fields that may be required. Hydrachnidia, also known as "water mites", Hydrachnidiae, Hydracarina or Hydrachnellae, are among the most abundant and diverse groups of benthic arthropods, composed of 6, described species from 57 families. As water mites of Africa, Asia, and South America have not been well-studied, the numbers are likely to be far greater. Other taxa of parasitengone mites Class: Arachnida.

"Water Mite Genera and Subgenera," was published in the memoirs of the American Entomological Institute, and is known by water mite workers as the "Cook Book." "Dr. Cook is a renowned expert on water mites, known for encouraging upcoming water mite workers. He has played a formative role in establishing many experts in the area.

Identification of water mite families, genera and subgenera, throughout the world, is possible using taxonomic publications. Keys to species level are also available but mainly for local faunas. Water mites (Limnesia maculata) and caddisfly larvae (Mystacides spp.) were exposed for 4 wk to either contaminated chironomid larvae (Chironomus riparius, – μg Cd∙g−1 or – Harvey () provides a key to the genera of Australian water mites, while Cook () has keys to many of the species. This LucID key includes a subkey to the families and subfamilies of water mites in Australia. References: Cook, D.R. Water mite genera and subgenera. Mem. Amer. Ent. Inst. True or False- According to the authors of this book, a series of phylogenetic analyses of Unionicola mites based upon molecular sequence data would be the best approach to resolving evolutionary relationships among the mite taxa that comprise the genus.

The mite Varroa destructor is a serious pest of honey bees, contributing to colony collapse disorder in commercial hives. The mite is an obligate external parasite, able to reproduce only in bee colonies. It directly weakens its host by sucking up the bee's fat, and can spread RNA viruses including deformed wing virus. Heavy infestation causes Class: Arachnida.
