Species of American house dust mite, in the family pyroglyphidae Source: National Library of Medicine, MeSH 2006

The most important House dust mites are Dermatophagoides farinae, which is more common in drier areas, and D. pteronyssinus. D. farinae has many of the same characteristics as D. pteronyssinus, which co-exists with the Storage mite Blomia tropicalis in subtropical and tropical regions as a major source of allergens. Recent evidence shows that even these very general boundaries are blurring and that in many instances all 3 mite species may be highly relevant, causing frequent sensitisation.

Dermatophagoides farinae, a species of house dust mite, is found worldwide but most abundant in drier regions. PMID: 15553602 Groups I and II, Der f 1 and Der f 2, are the most important allergenic proteins in D. farinae and exist as a number of isoforms. The recombinant forms, rDer f 1 and rDer f 2, are highly homologous to the native forms. PMID: 2732406 Source: Regenstrief LOINC
