Euseius flechtmanni  Denmark & Muma, 1970: 223; 1973: 261 (synonymy according to Moraes et al., 1982).

Specimens examined. Cananéia, February 2001, 8 females on Coffea  sp., 4 females on Hevea  sp. and 24 females on Guilielma  sp. and Piracicaba, February 2001, 1 female on Carica papaya L. 

Previous records. Brazil [States of Bahia, Ceará, Minas Gerais, Paraíba, Pernambuco, Piauí, Rio Grande do Sul and São Paulo (Moraes et al., 2004 b); Paraná, Rio Grande do Norte and Santa Catarina (Furtado et al., 2006); Mato Grosso (Demite & Feres, 2007); Maranhão (Lawson-Balagbo et al., 2008) and Roraima (Gondim Jr. et al., 2012)]; Argentina, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Montenegro, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Portugal, Trinidad and Venezuela (Moraes et al., 2004 b); Peru (Guanilo et al., 2008 b) and USA ( Denmark & Evans, 2011).

Remarks. The measurements of the specimens collected fit the measurements of the holotype provided by McMurtry (1983). They also agree with the redescription given by Moraes & McMurtry (1983) based on specimens from northeast Brazil and by Lofego et al. (2004; 2009) for specimens from the State of São Paulo. Specimens collected in this study have knob-tipped Sge II and Sge III. Denmark & Muma (1970) also mentioned knob-tipped Sge III for the type specimens of E. flechtmanni  , whereas Moraes & McMurtry (1983) reported pointed Sge III for some and knob-tipped for other populations from northeast Brazil.
