  Discrimination Among Three Cryptic Species of Mites of the Genus Chaetodactylus (Acari: Chaetodactylidae) Associated with Bees of the Genus Lithurgus (Hymenoptera: Megachilidae) in North America
*All regulated by Code names used here are not available names. They will be available when the paper describing them will be published.

To classify an unknown specimen input raw measurements and, scale coefficients (if measurements are in different scale)
and press the button "Classify Specimen" below

You can paste measurements from any spreadsheet application into the textbox below. Data must be arranged in a single row.

Calculations involve the following formula:
CV = b1*x1 + b2*x2 + ... + bn*xn + c
b1,b2,...bnCoefficients for CV1-CVn

Measurements used to develop and verify this classification model can be downloaded as a MS Excel file here
