Aceria sheldoni (Ewing) - (citrus bud mite)
This minute mite (length < 0.2 mm) is an important pest in many citrus growing regions throughout the world. It feeds inside the axillary buds before these open, causing deformed twigs, leaves, flowers and fruits which often drop. Growth is already affected by 1-3 mites per bud. However, citrus trees are apparently able to tolerate high levels of infestations (e.g. Vacante and Bonsignore, 2016).
