oa Journal of the Entomological Society of Southern Africa - Two New Predatory Mites (Acarina; Phytoseiinae) from Proteas in the Western Province

Volume 17, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 0013-8789



Nesbitt (1951) separated the genus Garmania from those mites of the genus Typhlodromus Scheuten having less than 19 pairs of setae on their dorsa. Characteristic of Garmania Nesbitt (in contrast to its subgenus Paragarmania Nesbitt) is the presence of a small anal plate bearing only three setae (Nesbitt, 1951). Two species of Paragarmania and four species of Garmania were partially redescriptionbed by Nesbitt: all of them were discovered and previously descriptionbed by Oudemans.
