1d) is similar in appearance and color pattern to the deutonymph
stage, but smaller.
After the larvae eclosion, the duration, in days, of each mite developmental stage was observed: larvae, protonymph, deutonymph
, adult-egg period, and the longevity of males and females.
However, the protonymph and deutonymph
phases were similar at 25 and 30[degrees]C.
tanajoa was followed to adulthood, with daily observations of the larval, protochrysalis, protonymph, deutochrysalis, deutonymph
, teleiochrysalis, and adult stages to verify the succession to the next stage, as characterized by the presence of exuviae.
The life cycle of water mites is complex and includes the egg, larva, protonymph, deutonymph
, tritonymph, and adult.
Up until now, 23 species have been described in this group, one of which is known only from the deutonymph
The mean durations of larval, protonymph, deutonymph
of female and male stages were 1.
When it found a female deutonymph
in the quiescent stage it settled very close to it and waited for its moulting and also helping to cast off the moulting skin.

Snake mites have a five-stage life cycle: egg, larva, protonymph, deutonymph
, and adult.
represented the last instar before attaining the adult status.
Each phoretic deutonymph
attaches to its host by means of an anally secreted fluid that solidifies in the air into a supportive, stem-like structure called a pedicel.
