Tenuipalpidae associated with ornamental plants in Distrito Federal, Brazil. Under field conditions, it is surprising to discover how soon the mites move to newly established kiwifruit Actinidia deliciosa orchards a fairly recently introduced crop from New Zealand into Chile from adjacent infested vineyards.

The oviposition period of the first generation may extend for 3 weeks and the total length of this generation, which occurs in mid-spring, may take up to 2 months.

The latter character is only visible with phase contrast microscopy: Further details may be available for individual references in the Distribution Table Details section which can be selected by going to Generate Report. A reduction in size and losses of the new growth are observed from October onwards due to feeding by the adult females moving from their wintering sites in the trunk.

The species of citrus affected by the mite, including lemons Citrus limonoranges Citrus spp. Brevipalpus chilensis Chilean false red mite ; female. These organs may be scarred by feeding and call for a very early acaricide treatment because female movement to the growing foliage may be slow; usually two spray applications are needed.

Impact Top of page Among fruit trees, the vines are the most economically affected crops, particularly red grape wine cultivars, which must be treated with chilfnsis acaricides to deplete populations. These two species coexist in the northern part of Chile on a variety of hosts. Table grape cultivars, with the exception of a couple of old red varieties, are practically not attacked by the mite and bunches can be harvested without mobile stages on the berries.

Major differences among the two species are shown in the dorsal chaetotaxy of protonymphs and in the reticulation patterns of the adult females.

From a quarantine point of view, their common occurrence on export crops such as citrus and table grapes frequently poses problems because bdevipalpus morphological separation may prove to be difficult under regular quarantine inspections. All stages of B. No twisting or distortion occurs. Kiwifruits, notwithstanding their late arrival in Chile, were immediately subject to mite colonization, thus posing another quarantine problem to some importing countries, namely the USA.
