Title: New Collection Records and Host Range of the Cottonwood Leafcurl Mite, Tetra Loblulifera (Keifer) (Acari: Eriophyidae), in the USA

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: The cottonwood leafcurl mite, Aculops lobuliferus Keifer, 1961, is renamed as Tetra lobulifera (Keifer). This eriophyid mite is capable of inflicting substantial damage on plantation- and native-grown cottonwoods (Populus spp.). We report new State and County collection records from the eastern and northwestern U.S.A. as well as new host records, including Populus grandidentata Michx. (big-tooth aspen), for this pest. This updates the established geographic range of T. lobulifera, and demonstrates its ability to utilize other host plants in the genus Populus for development.

Keywords: Atari, Eriophyidae, cottonwood leafcurl mite, distribution, Populus, Tetra lobulifera, USA
