    in the Taiwan area. Eotetranychus lewisi is mainly found in mountainous areas with cooler temperatures. Those found at lower elevations were always on potted seedlings of poinsettia (Euphorbia sp.). Populations of Eotetranychus lewisi were also found on Bauhinia variegatabauhinia variegataSubject Category: Organism Names

    were observed to feed on Eotetranychus lewisi. T. evansi was found in most counties of Taiwan, as well as the offshore islands of Kinmen and Matsu. Tomato, aubergine and Solanum nigrum were heavily infested with this mite on Kinmen and Matsu.

    , it was mainly found on S. nigrum on the main island of Taiwan. Two phytoseiids, a predaceous cecidomyiid larva and Scolothrips sp. were found in the population of T. evansi, and the thrips were observed to feed on this spider mite.
