The deutonymph of a new species of the chortoglyphid genus Aplodontopus is described from a population of Marmota flaviventris occupying a city park in eastern Washington state, USA. Many of the mite-infested individuals displayed hair loss ranging from 20-100%, along with a variety of tissue and histological abnormalities. A key to the deutonymphs of described species of Aplodontopus is presented.
