Phytoseiid mites of Martinique, with redescription of four species and new records (Acari: Mesostigmata)

Kreiter S., Zriki G., Ryckewaert P., Pancarte C., Douin M., Tixier M.S.. 2018. Acarologia, 58 (2) : p. 366-407.

Authors report results of a study performed between May 2011 and September 2013 on cover plants tested for future uses in citrus orchards in Martinique. A total of twenty-two species were found among which eight are very common in the West Indies. A catalogue of four new records for Martinique and three new records for the French West Indies is provided, with some information on their biology when available, and biogeography. Some considerations for six additional species, two rarely recorded in the West Indies and four already recorded and very common but with some new data and discussions, are also provided. Among these 13 species, four are re-described.
