Phytoseiulus macropilis (predator) (Banks, 1905)

This predatory mite is apparently native to tropical and some subtropical regions like the Mediterranean and the south-eastern U.S.A. It cannot survive in temperate regions, e.g. it will die at 5° C in less than 3 days. It is effective in greenhouses against Tetranychus urticae and other spider mites.
