Bryobia ulicis Eyndhoven, 1959  

Bryobia ulicis   was reported by Eyndhoven and Vacante (1985) from several locations in southern Portugal on Ulex europaeus   . Nevertheless, the host reported by these authors is probably incorrect because U. europaeus   does not occur on or near the locations where the mites were collected (Flora-On 2020), whilst other native Ulex species   are common and widespread in the collection regions mentioned by the authors. There are no records of this species in the INIAV acarological collection, but in 2019 we collected two females on U. europaeus   in the centre of Portugal ( Table 2), suggesting more widespread national distribution.
