Wolbachia form a group of closely related intracellular Proteobacteria that manipulate reproduction of their arthropod host in various ways. They are widespread in insects, but have not been not looked for in other arthropods except a few isopods and a predatory mite. Recently, Wolbachia were demonstrated to be widespread in mites also. Here, I report that Wolbachia induce cytoplasmic incompatibility in two spider mite species, Tetranychus urticae and T. turkestani, in crosses between infected… CONTINUE READING
