Acari Acalitus Phytoptus new species New Zealand


The following species are described for the first time - Phytoptus nifensis from Luzula nifa var. rufa; Aceria healyi from Myoporum laetum; Acalitus temtis from Coprosma tenuicaulis; Acalitus rubensis from Rubus schmidelioides and Acalitus morrisoni from Nothofagus solandri. This is the first record of the genera Phytoptus and Acalitus from New Zealand. The resultant damage caused by A. morrisoni and A. rubensis has been recognised previously, and its cause as being due to eriophyoid mites (MoRRISON 1933, and LAMB rg6o), but no descriptions of the mites have been published
