Article
This paper deals with the description of Proprioseiopsis salviae n. sp. (Acari: Mesostigmata: Phytoseiidae) on the basis of adult females and male. The new mite species was collected from the soil underneath some ornamental plants, at Orman Botanical Garden, Giza governorate, Egypt. Mites were extracted using Modified Tullgren funnel and mounted on...

This work evaluates the predator, Neoseiulus barkeri as a biocontrol agent for Aceria oleae and Tegolophus hassani on olive seedlings in Egypt. Three release rates (50, 100 and 150 predators/olive seedlings) were tested, and the numbers of N. barkeri and eriophyids were assessed over the 2017 and 2018 seasons. For both years, the densities of N. ba...

The objective of this paper is to provide a taxonomic appraisal of the melicharids from Egypt, based on specimens previously collected by different authors and on specimens newly collected by the first author of this paper, all belonging to the genus Proctolaelaps Berlese. A new species, Proctolaelaps gizaensis n. sp., is described, thus raising to...
Article
A survey of plant inhabiting mesostigmatid mites was recently conducted in the Dominican Republic. Phytoseiidae was by far the most represented family, with 12 species. Amblyseius tamatavensis Blommers was the most common species; it was reported from four provinces on five plant species. Two species of Ascidae, four of Blattisociidae and three of...
Conference Paper
Species of Ameroseiidae have been studied in Egypt to understand their ecology. Many specimens collected from different plants and soils from Egypt are being identified to species level.

The Lasioseius phytoseioides species group was first characterised over 50 years ago. Two species of this group, Lasioseius chaudhrii (Wu & Wang) and Lasioseius parberlesei Bhattacharyya, have been considered potentially effective as biological control agents of pest mites of the family Tarsonemidae on rice (Oryza sativa L.) in Asia. A new characte...

The life history parameters of the two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae Koch on six rose cultivars (Rosa hybrida cv. Mabella Yellow, Sandra, Eiffel Tower, Huddly, Red Syntrex, and White Queen Elizabeth) had been performed. The experiment was maintained at 20, 25, 30±2ºC and 70±5% RH. Results documented that leaves of ‘Mabella Yellow’ cultiv...

Rhodacaridae is a widespread mite group in the soil and in accumulation of decaying organic matter. These mites are commonly predators of nematodes, small insects, mites and springtails. Mites of this family are mainly characterized by the insertion of seta st4 on the sternal shield, the desclerotised bands of punctate integument along anterior mar...
Conference Paper
The development, survivorship and reproduction of the African red mite, Eutetranychus africanus (Tücker), on White Frangipani (Plumeria alba) leaves were determined under laboratory conditions at three temperatures (20, 25 and 30±2 °C) and 70±5% relative humidity. Mites completed their development and reproduction within this temperature range. Dev...
