PODEROSO, J.C.M. et al. First Brazilian report of Erythrina velutina Willd. as host of Tetranychus neocaledonicus (Acari: Tetranychidae). Rev. bras. plantas med. [online]. 2010, vol.12, n.3, pp.398-401. ISSN 1516-0572.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1516-05722010000300017.

Spider mites are important pests to several crops worldwide. During prospecting in Erytrina velutina specimens from São Cristovão District, Sergipe State, Brazil, their occurrence was observed in 15% seedlings, which were taken to the laboratory for description of damages. The seedlings presented leaf blade reduction and crumpling symptoms. One hundred mites were collected from these seedlings and mounted on microscope slides for taxonomic identification. The identified mites belonged to the species Tetranychus neocaledonicus (Acari: Tetranychidae). This is the first report of E. velutina as host for T. neocaledonicus in Brazil.

Palavras-chave : spider mites; forest pest; nursery.
