Two new phytoptine species, Oziella virgata n. sp. and O. ovalis n. sp., were collected from the Russian Far East on sedges, Carex appendiculata (Trautv. & C.A. Mey) Kükenthal and Kobresia myosuroides (Villars) Fiori, respectively, and are described herein using conventional light microscopy (LM) and confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM). In addition, Oziella cf. rigida (Roivainen 1950) was recorded from Carex scita var. riishirensis (Franch.) Kük. in the Kamchatka Peninsula whilst… Expand

Molecular phylogeny of the phytoparasitic mite family Phytoptidae (Acariformes: Eriophyoidea) identified the female genitalic anatomy as a major macroevolutionary factor and revealed multiple origins of gall induction
It is shown that gall-inducing ability evolved multiple times in phytoptids, a conclusion contrasting with the general expectation that host characteristics should be a major macroevolutionary force influencing the evolution of host-specific symbionts. Expand
