Morpho-functional variety of the coxal glands in cheyletoid mites (Prostigmata). I. Syringophilidae.
Ultrastructure and functional morphology of the mouthparts in Raoiella mites (Tetranychoidea: Tenuipalpidae): how they use the cheliceral stylets during feeding
The mouthpart organization and the feeding behavior found in Raoiella indica and R. bauchani Beard & Ochoa are described and observations of possible epidermal feeding on Phoenix roebelenii O'Brien (Arecaceae) for R. indica are presented.
Making a Better Home: Modulation of Plant Defensive Response by Brevipalpus Mites
The first report on the global and dynamic plant transcriptome triggered by Brevipalpus feeding is provided, extending the knowledge on plant-mite interaction and suggesting that Breviplepus mites manipulate the plant defensive response to render the plant more susceptible to their colonization by inducing the SA-mediated pathway.
External morphology of the mouthparts and observations on behavior of Tuckerella japonica on Camellia sinensis in the continental USA
Females were observed defending the areas where their eggs and/or young occurred and this behavior along with potentially limited access to exposed periderm or availability of shoots in the rows of plants may restrict higher populations of T. japonica from becoming established.
Virus-vector relationship in the Citrus leprosis pathosystem
The short latent and transmission periods during the larval stage suggest that the CiLV-C/B.
Peculiar salivary glands in a silk‐producing mite Bakericheyla chanayi (Cheyletidae)
The detection of axon profiles in the gland body suggests a neural control for the glandular cell function, and two possible ways of secretion are suggested: 1) exocytosis into the acinar cavity and 2) direct passage via the central processes.
Interspecific interactions involving Neoseiulus californicus (Acari: Phytoseiidae) and Agistemus brasiliensis (Acari: Stigmaeidae) as predators of Brevipalpus phoenicis (Acari: Tenuipalpidae)
The aim of this work was to study the interactions of Neoseiulus californicus (McGregor) (Phytoseiidae) and Agistemus brasiliensis Matioli, Ueckermann & Oliveira (Stigmaeidae), in the presence or absence of B. phoenicis.
Circulative Transmission of Cileviruses in Brevipalpus Mites May Involve the Paracellular Movement of Virions
The hypothesis of the paracellular movement of CiLV-C in mites which may involve the manipulation of septate junctions is positted and putative genes that could control either active or passiveParacellular circulation of viral particles inside the mites are proposed.
A Novel Lineage of Cile-Like Viruses Discloses the Phylogenetic Continuum Across the Family Kitaviridae
SvRSV, LigCSV, and LigLV seem to represent novel sub-lineages of kitaviruses that descent on parallel evolutionary branches from a common ancestor shared with the tentative cile-like virus hibiscus yellow blotch virus and typical cileviruses.
First record of Cenopalpus officinalis Papaioannou-Souliotis (Tenuipalpidae) for Israel, Italy and Mexico
Cenopalpus officinalis Papaioannou-Souliotis, 1986 (Trombidiformes: Tetranychoidea: Tenuipalpidae) is reported for the first time from Israel, Italy and Mexico. Previously, this flat mite species was
