Abstract

The authors report results of several surveys carried out to collect phytoseiid mites, between April 2008 and January 2009, in crops and natural surrounding vegetation in several locations of Guadeloupe, La Désirade, Les Saintes and Martinique. A catalogue of 11 new species for Guadeloupe, La Désirade, Les Saintes and Martinique is provided with some information on their biology, when available, and biogeography. New locations for six additional species rarely recorded in the West Indies are also provided. Among the 11 new species, one species new to Science, named Transeius mariae-angeae, is described.
