Eriophyoidea Nothopodinae Eriophyidae Adenocolus Floracarus Colopodacus Neofloracarus Nothopoda


Mites of the subfamily Nothopodinae from the Afrotropical region are dealt with. The following five new species collected on indigenous plants in South Africa are described and illustrated: Adenocolus psydraxi from Psydrax livida (Rubiaceae); Floracarus transvaalensis from Rhoicissus tomentosa (Vitaceae) and Rhus chiridensis (Anacardiaceae); F. tiliaceus from Grewia occidentalis (Tiliaceae); F. oxyanthi from Oxyanthus speciosus (Acanthaceae); Nothopoda natalensis from Aspilia natalensis (Asteraceae). The genus Adenoculus is new to science. The relationships of each species are briefly discussed.
