Humerobates rostrolamellatus Grandjean Cherry beetle mite

This generally common mite is often recorded in considerable numbers on the trunks and branches of trees, including unsprayed fruit trees and ornamentals, where they feed mainly on algae, lichens and mosses. The mites will also congregate on split, ripening cherries and plums, but they do not attack sound fruits. The adult mites are globular, about 1 mm long, shiny, dark reddish or blackish (see Fig. 177). When clustered on the bark, they are often thought to be eggs of some kind of pest; they may also be mistaken for bryobia mites, especially the apple & pear bryobia mite, Bryobia rubrioculus (p. 266).
