Eutetranychus banksi (McGregor, 1914) - (Texas citrus mite)

This spider mite is widely distributed in tropical and subtropical parts of the Americas. It has been also recorded from south-western Europe since 1999 (Ferragut et al., 2013). E. banksi is polyphagous and can be, for example, common on citrus. It feeds usually on the upper leaf surface, causing tiny punctures and leaf discoloration. Fruits may also become infested at high population densities, where it results in rind scarring.
