Previous records in Rio Grande do Sul. Capitão and Sério (Ferla & Moraes, 1998); Mata, Passo Fundo, Santa Cruz do Sul and Santa Maria (Ferla & Moraes, 2002); Bom Princípio, Capitão and Lajeado (Ferla et al., 2007); Candiota and Encruzilhada do Sul (Johann et al., 2009); Candiota, Encruzilhada do Sul and Boqueirão do Leão (Ferla et al., 2011); Bento Gonçalves (Klock et al., 2011); Venâncio Aires and Roca Sales (Eichelberger et al., 2011).

Comments. Setae Z 1 and St IV were about 30 and 20 % shorter than in the original description, and setae Z 5 25 % longer than in the description (De Leon, 1967). This was the most common predator on associated plants present around strawberry crops (Ferla et al., 2007). It has also been reported on other cultivated plants as well as on natural vegetation, in combination with other mite species (Moraes & McMurtry, 1983; Moraes et al., 1990; Noronha et al., 1997).
