A Taxonomic Review of Indian Tetranychidae: Acari: Prostigmata

S.K. Gupta (Author) Y.N. Gupta (Author)
Synopsis The present paper includes a total of 101 species under 2 subfamilies, 6 tribes and 19 genera so far known from India. Out of these, descriptions and illustrations are provided for 87 valid species including 6 new ones. Besides, for the known species, synonymies, host records in India and abroad, detailed distributions and economic importance for pest species are provided. The remaining 14 species, which are included at the end as "Dubious Records', are those which were not accessible to the authors for re-checking their identities or their occurrences in India appeared doubtful due to various reasons or some appear to be cases of misidentifications. So, for those species, only the relevant references along with their hosts and distributions are provided without giving their detailed descriptions, illustrations and, except in respect of 1 or 2 species, most of those were not included in keys pending establishing their true identities. In addition, a brief discussion has been made regarding general morphology having relevance on taxonomy of the family and zoogeographical distribution.
