Rust mite Aceria anthocoptes, coloured SEM from the Agricultural Research Service.


Belongs within: Eriophyoidea.

Aceria is a large genus of over 800 species of eriophyid mite, some of which are serious pests of commercial crops. Many species case the development of galls or erinea (open papillar masses) on their host plants. The citrus bud mite Aceria sheldoni feeds in buds and developing fruit, causing distortion of flowers, fruits and leaves (Walter et al. 2009).
