Males of a subsocial spider mite,Schizotetranychus miscanthi Saito, show intense aggressive behavior against conspecific males. The possibility of males distinguishing between their uterine brothers and non-relatives was experimentally investigated. Comparison between aggressiveness of males against their uterine brothers and that against unrelated males suggested that males of this species do not recognize their kin.
