Abstract
  1. Thirty-five species and three subspecies of Scutacaridae are listed from New York. An identification key to the species is given. In addition, three new species and 1 new subspecies are described and figured; these are: Imparipes cupes, Scutacarus (S.) meansi, S. (S.) unicus indefinitus, and S. (Variatipes) subaffinis. The specimens were collected from bird nests, dog food, and from a cupedid beetle. Scutacarus (S.) subellipticus Delfinado & Baker, 1976 (Dec.) is a synonym of S. (S.) curtus Delfinado, Baker & Abbatiello, 1976 (June). The following are transferred from Imparipes Berlese to Archidispus Karafiat: insulanus (Delfinado, Baker & Abbatiello), longitarsus (Delfinado, Baker & Abbatiello), similis (Delfinado, Baker & Abbatiello) and tarsalis (Delfinado, Baker & Abbatiello).
