Abstract:

2,229 water mites representing 56 species were collected in seven Mazurian lakes. Six faunal elements were distinguished: lacustrine, eurytopic typical of small water bodies, tyrphophilic, rheobiontic, rheophilic and astatic spring fauna. The species structure was dominated by the lacustrine element, and the numerical structure – by eurytopic species occurring in small water bodies. Six species indicatory of moderate lake eutrophy were recorded, i.e. Atractides ovalis, Limnesia polonica, Unionicola mionor, Piona stjoerdalensis, P. rotundoides, Forelia spatulifera and Atractides lacustris, indicating mesotrophy, was trapped in Lake Mokre only. The lakes examined are characterized byrather low faunal similarity. The highest degree of similarity was noted between two dystrophic lakes, Klimunt and Skarp, whereas Lake Majcz Wielki showed the greatest faunal distinctness.
