A new genus and species of chigger mites, Minteracarus mombasa n. gen., n. sp.,
has been described from the heart-nosed bat, Cardioderma cor (Peters) (Chiroptera:
Megadermatidae) in Mombasa, Kenya. The description was based on the material
identified as a new species of the genus Trombicula Berlese, 1905 by P.H. Vercammen-Grandjean,
but remained undescribed until the present.
