A hindgut, divided into anterior and posterior regions, opens to the exterior either terminally or subterminally. The gut usually is provided with a number of paired diverticula. In some mites, a pair of Malpighian tubules may open into the hindgut. The stomach is small, and most of the midgut is formed by the large diverticulae or caecae in families in the Gamasida and in ticks (Ixodida).
