Amblyseius

Amblyseius swirskii, copyright Stephen Luk.


Belongs within: Phytoseioidea.

Amblyseius is a diverse genus of predatory mites, many species of which are significant in biological control of agricultural pests. In particular, a number of species have been found in association with the broad mite Polyphagotarsonemus latus, such as Amblyseius asiaticus, A. largoensis and A. tamatavensis on potato plants (Corpuz-Raros 2002).

Characters (from Krantz & Ainscough 1990): Dorsal setae J2 present; z3 absent.
