Abstract

This paper reports ten tetranychid mites species on several cultivated and uncultivated plants in Latakia governorate (Syria) in 2011-2012. Three species belong to the subfamily Bryobiinae and to the genera Aplonobia, Bryobia and Petrobia, while seven species belong to the subfamily Tetranychinae and to the genera Eotetranychus, Eutetranychus, Panonychus and Tetranychus. Nine of the mite species identified in this study are reported for the first time from Syria, while one species had already been previously reported. This paper gives information concerning locations, host plants and distribution of each collected species.
