The second volume of the series “Acarorum Catalogus” is devoted to the group (formerly Superfamily) Listrophoroidea of the world. About 830 species are listed therein, with synonymies and citations in various papers. The book also contains a list of by-country distributions and lists of authors who published on any known species from Listrophoridae, Myocoptidae, Chirodiscidae and Atopomelidae. There are also lists including hosts of these mites and eight new combinations. The  bibliography consists of more than 480 titles. Other volumes of the same series on the pattern of the first two are under way.
