Scope note: Family of MITES in the superfamily Trombiculoidea, suborder Prostigmata, which attack humans and other vertebrates, causing DERMATITIS and severe allergic reactions. Chiggers, red bugs, and harvest mites commonly refer to the larval stage of Trombiculid mites, the only parasitic stage of the mite's life cycle.

Leptotrombidium - Narrower
Concept UI M0379020
Scope note Subgenus of MITES, in the genus Trombicula, which is the vector for ORIENTIA TSUTSUGAMUSHI, the agent of SCRUB TYPHUS. Some authorities consider Leptotrombidium a genus.
Preferred term Leptotrombidium
Entry term(s) Leptotrombidiums
Trombicula - Narrower
Concept UI M0379019
Scope note A genus of MITES in the family TROMBICULIDAE, whose larvae cause and carry disease. The larvae attack humans and other vertebrates, causing dermatitis and severe allergic reactions. Adult forms do not bite. Species of the subgenera Leptotrombidium are the carriers of SCRUB TYPHUS.
Preferred term Trombicula
Entry term(s) Trombiculas
