Who was Zicman Feider?

Zicman Feider was a Jewish Romanian acarologist. He carried out the taxonomical and systematical study of many Acarina groups: Trombidia, Ixodoidea, Oribatidae, Gamasidea, Rhinonyssidae, Erythraeidea, Prostigmata from Romania; Nicolletiellidae and Sternostoma genus throughout the world; some groups from the fauna of Germany, of St. Helen island, North Korea, Nepal, Mongolia, and South America. Alone or in collaboration with his numerous disciples, he described over 100 species, 30 genera, 4 subgenera, 14 families, 6 subfamilies, 1 phalanx and 2 subphalanxes new to science. He found phylogenetic indicators in the structures of trichobotrias, aspis, and genital and anal plaques in the larva chetotaxis and visual organs at Ixodidae or in the breathing apparatus, metopic edge and genital structure of trombidia. He published three monographs in the "Fauna" collection of the Romanian Academy Press: Trombidoidea, Ixodoidea, and Trombiculoidea. Another acarologist, Libertina Solomon, dedicated the species Myonyssus feideri to Zicman Feider.
