001 * Abacarus nectandrae Flechtmann & Moraes, 2002 a: 2   .

Type host. Nectandra membranacea (Sw.) Griseb.   ( Lauraceae   ).

Type locality. Pariquera-açu, (24°36’51”S, 47°53’22”W), São Paulo, Brazil GoogleMaps   .

Relationship to host plant. Vagrants on underside of leaves, no apparent symptoms.

Remarks. Only known from the type host/locality.

Type host plant status in Brazil. Native tree, not endemic, occurring in Amazônia , Caatinga , Cerrado and Mata Atlântica biomes ( Flora do Brasil 2020)   .

002 * Abacarus neosacchari Duarte & Navia, 2019   in Duarte et al. (2019: 386).

Type host. Saccharum sp.   (hybrid) ( Poaceae   ).

Type locality. Teotônio Vilela (9º51′54″S, 36º20′01″W), Alagoas, Brazil GoogleMaps   .

Additional reports in Brazil. Barra de Santo Antônio (09°52′08″S, 36°23′43″W), Barra de São Miguel (09°52′55″S, 36°19′45″W), Campo Alegre (10°01′04″S, 36°15′21″W), Coruripe (09°55′40″S, 36°16′45″W), Junqueiro (9°51′53″S, 36°19′45″W), Rio Largo (9°50′53″S, 36°19′45″W), São Miguel dos Campos (09°52′09″S, 36°23′43″W), São Sebastião (09°54′09″S, 36°23′43″W) ( Duarte et al. 2019), Alagoas GoogleMaps   ; Recife (08°01′04″S, 34°56′47″W) ( Duarte et al. 2019), Pernambuco GoogleMaps   ; Teresina (05º02′21″S, 42º47′22″W) ( Duarte et al. 2019), Piauí GoogleMaps   ; Boa vista (02°43′28″N, 60°48′08″W) ( Duarte et al. 2019), Roraima GoogleMaps   ; Piracicaba (22°42′15″S, 47°37′58″W), Rio das Pedras, Saltinho ( Duarte et al. 2019), São Paulo GoogleMaps   ; locality not informed, Sergipe.

Relationship to host plant. Vagrant on the upper surface of the leaves, rarely on the lower surface. Presumably associated with reddish spots, rust. Since sugarcane plants presenting reddish spots were infested by both A. neosacchari   and Abacarus sacchari Channabasavanna   , it is not possible to state if just one or if both species were responsible for these rust symptoms. Such symptoms could be confused with those caused also by rust fungi, which are commonly associated with sugarcane ( Duarte et al. 2019).

Type host plant status in Brazil. Exotic , cultivated as extensive crop, occurring in all biomes and regions ( Flora do Brasil 2020)   .

Relationship to host plants. Vagrants on upper or lower leaf surface, found in the laminar grooves ( Channabasavanna 1966), especially on young leaves, causing longitudinal chlorotic spots ( Moraes & Flechtmann 2008). In São Paulo state, mites were found in dense populations along furrows on upper surface of the newer leaves ( Flechtmann & Aranda 1970). Possibly also associated with reddish spots and rust on the leaves ( Duarte et al., 2019).

Type host plant status in Brazil. Exotic , cultivated as extensive crop, occurring in all biomes and regions ( Flora do Brasil 2020)   .

Additional host plant status in Brazil. Saccharum sp.   — exotic, cultivated as extensive crop, occurring in all biomes and regions ( Flora do Brasil 2020).

Relationship to host plant. Vagrants on leaves; rust mites causing yellowing ( Keifer 1976).

Remarks. Only known from the type host/locality.
