Calacarus flagelliseta Fletchmann, de Moraes & Barbosa, 2001 - (papaya rust mite)

This rust mite appears to be widely distributed. It has been described from Brazil, but has been also recorded from Hawaii and the Near East. The mite feeds on the epidermal cells of papaya leaves, initially resulting in chlorotic spots and later in rolling of the leaf margins.
