Tyrophagus neiswanderi Johnston Bruce Cucumber mite

This species may also infest cucumber plants; attacks have also been noted on damaged tissue of other glasshouse-grown plants, including chrysanthemum. The mites are similar in appearance to Tyrophagus longior (above) but slightly smaller; also, they possess a characteristic pair of pigmented, eye-like patches on the propodosomal shield. Populations of this species are capable of overwintering in glasshouses in the absence of straw and, although generally less common, the mites appear better adapted to survival as plant feeders than various other related species.
