On December 28 of last year, Dr. Daniel González-Acuña, Veterinarian and professor at the Veterinary School of the University of Concepción in Chile, left us. Daniel was a brilliant researcher who stood out as a parasitologist and because of his passion for nature, being a promoter in the conservation of it. He graduated in 1988 as a veterinarian from the University of Concepción, and did his doctoral studies at the Hannover University of Veterinary Medicine in Germany. In his doctoral thesis he studied the endo and ectoparasites of Chilean birds, ending in 1997. Upon his return to Chile, he obtained a teaching position at the University of Concepción as professor of Zoology at the Faculty of Veterinary Sciences, in Chillán. In 2012 he obtained the category of full professor at the same university. Daniel was known for spreading the enthusiasm for research to his more than 100 undergraduate and graduate students, many of whom continued down the path of science. He was also a passionate nature photographer as well as a mountaineer. As a result of his dedication to research, Dr. González-Acuña was the author of more than 300 publications including scientific papers, books, and book chapters. His work has been widely recognized both in his country and internationally. As for acarology, Daniel leaves us a great legacy, since of the 65 species described by him for science, 39 correspond to mites and five to ticks. Dr. González-Acuña was one of the great contemporary parasitologists, not because of his work in Chile, but in South America. Daniel, your colleagues and friends say goodbye to you with great affection, admiration, a great memory that will remain forever.

Dear fellow acarologists, we regret the passing of Dr. Gary R. Bauchan, Director of the Aphis-USDA Center for Microscopy. Gary collaborated with numerous acarologists and students capturing the best mite images for his work. On the SLA page there are several that he provided us for display. He leaves an important wealth in images and research papers. He was a very kind and collaborative person. His departure is very sad news. Our condolences to his family and colleagues.
