Eriophydae Acalitus Aceria Eriophes new species New Zealand


Four new species are described: Aceria parvensis from Stellaria parviflora; Eriophyes duguidae from Raoulia temticaulis; Acalitus lowei from Nothofagus solandri and Phyllocoptes acuminatus from leaves of Codiaeum sp. intercepted in quarantine from ·western Samoa and Fiji. Acalihts orthomera (Keifer) and Tegolophus australis Keifer are recorded for the first time. Eriophyid leaf galls have previously been recognised from Nothofagus solandri by LAMB (1960) but the causal mite has never been described. All holotype and paratype slides are deposited in the collection of the Department of Agriculture, Levin.
