Neozygites floridana (entomopathogen) (Weiser & Muma) Remaud. & S. Keller 1980

This fungus is widely distributed and commonly infects various species of spider mites. For example, it is regarded as an important natural enemy of Tetranychus urticae. However, it can be negatively affected by pesticides used against these mites. Further it is difficult to grow on artificial media and to mass-produce.
