Reports are presented concerning the collecting and recording methods, attached larvae, chigger sampling, recovery of adults, culture methods, the mass culture, key to larval chiggers, host-chigger lists, habitat of active larval chiggers, chigger-host relationships, life history studies, morphological studies of postlarval stages, and internal morphologyand histology of adults. Data are presented concerning the species of the following genera: Trombicula, Euschongastia, Neoschongastia, Speleocola, Pseudoschongastia, Walchia, Acomatacarus, Cheladonta, Leeuwenhoekia, and Hannemania.
