For additional details on collecting and preparing mites from other habitats, see Evans et al. (1961) and Krantz and Walter (2009). 4 Identification of Mites Specialized training is required for a novice to identify mites to species using taxonomic keys. Identification of mites, even to family level, requires learning to slide-mount mite specimens in the correct orientation so relevant morphological characters are visible. 5). You need a slide-mounting medium, such as Hoyer’s mounting medium (25 g distilled water; 15 g gum arabic; 100 g of chloral hydrate, which is difficult to obtain; and 10 g of glycerol).
11 Diagram of a female two-spotted spider mite, Tetranychus urticae. Abbreviations: APGL, anterior podocephalic gland; CNM, central nervous mass; DPGL, dorsal podocephalic gland; ES, esophagus; HG, hindgut; OV, ovary with vitellogenic oocytes outside the ovary; OVI and OVII, anterior and posterior oviduct; PH, pharyngeal pump; RE, rectum; RS, receptaculum seminis where males insert the sperm packet; SILKGL, silk gland; SP, spinneret; ST, stylet; STY, stylophore; VAG, vagina; VE, ventriculus. Note that the esophagus goes through the central nerve mass, or brain.
17). The environmental cues that induce diapause in the Eriophyoidea have not been studied, but diapause appears to be obligatory in some species. Deutogynes cannot lay eggs in the same growing season in which they appear but must experience winter chill before they can deposit eggs. Deutogynes have reduced microtuberculation of the idiosoma (probably to reduce water loss), narrow tergites, and fewer ridges, furrows, and projections than the protogynes of the same species. 11 Dispersal Dispersal is important in the life cycles of mites, particularly those that live in temporary habitats, such as phytophagous species inhabiting deciduous plants (Jeppson et al.
