Remarks. This is one of the most common phytoseiid species in Thailand. The females examined are slightly larger than reported in the original description (dorsal shield about 15 % larger); concurrently, setae z 5, S 2 and S 5 are on average about 15 % longer. Our measurements are similar to those reported by Moraes et al. (2004 a) for specimens from Sri Lanka.
