KeywordsAcari Tydeidae Lorryia teresae new species Malus sylvestris Portugal
Lorryia teresae n. sp., has been collected on leaves and twigs of Malus sylvestris (L.) Mil. ssp. mitis. (Wallr.), near Chaves, in Northern Portugal. This species is similar to Lorryia fundadorensis Baker, from Central America, differing from it that the dorsal setae are stouter and the dorsal reticulation is elongated, mainly on the propodosoma. Other species of Lorryia described elsewhere from Central America present a rather quadrangular type of reticulation.
