Dear colleagues - I am trying to track down a locality for a mite specimen
collected in Mongolia. With the spelling I have, the locality doesn't show
up in GNIS or in a Google search.
The specimen data for the mammal host that I have are as follows:
*Allactaga sibirica* (Rodentia: Dipodidae)
6 June 1975
If anyone recognizes this rodent specimen and knows where it might be
housed, that information would be useful as well. The late colleague
from whom I received the mite specimen often had issues with spelling on
his specimen labels.
Any help with this locality and specimen repository will be appreciated!
Stay well!! - Barry
