Species of mange mites of cats and other felids (Fig. 1), which reach a size of about 235–300 × 200 μm as females and 150–180 × 120 μm as males. In the life cycle (which takes 3 weeks) one larva and two nymphs occur prior to adults. The symptoms of this peculiar mange start at the tips of the ear (Fig. 2) and generalize very often to the whole surface of the head. Young cats may die very soon, but also elder ones lose weight and may die after 4–5 months. Molecular biological assays showed strain variations (e.g., N. cati var cuniculi of rabbits). Mites.
