Description

I put my pitfall trap out in the Garden at my flat in Riccarton. I left it out for 5 to 6 nights. Over the 6 nights there were different types of weather and climate.

After looking through the microscope in the Lab today I identified this mite.

Description from Wikipedia

Spider mites are members of the Acari (mite) family Tetranychidae, which includes about 1,200 species. They generally live on the undersides of leaves of plants, where they may spin protective silk webs, and they can cause damage by puncturing the plant cells to feed. Spider mites are known to feed on several hundred species of plants.

No range data available.
