Type host. Eugenia uniflora   L. ( Myrtaceae   ).

Type locality. Recife (08°01’07”S, 34°56’41”W), Pernambuco, Brazil GoogleMaps   .

Relationship to host plant. Vagrants on the lower leaf surface, no symptoms observed ( Reis et al. 2010).

Remark. Only known from the type host/locality.

Type host plants status. Native shrub, not endemic, occurring in Caatinga, Cerrado, Mata Atlântica and Pampa biomes ( Flora do Brasil 2020), cultivated mainly in domestic orchards throughout the country ( Lorenzi et al. 2006).

111 Dichopelmus notus Keifer, 1959b: 10   .

Type host. Ilex paraguariensis St. Hil.   ( Aquifoliaceae   ).

Ponta Grossa and Colombo ( Flechtmann 1998b), Dois Vizinhos (25°42’52”S, 53°03’94”W) ( Gouvea et al. 2006), Cascavel ( Alves et al. 2000), São Mateus do Sul (in this paper, specimens deposited at the mite   collection in ESALQ, USP), Paraná; Erechim ( Flechtmann 1998b), Capitão ( Ferla et al. 2005), Ilópolis (52°7’29”W, 28°55’43”S) ( Ferla et al. 2006), Putinga ( Gonçalves & Ferla 2013a), Arvorezinha ( Silva et al. 2017) Rio Grande do Sul; Chapecó ( Flechtmann 1998b), Santa Catarina.

Relationship to host plant. Presumably rust mites, living on the open leaf surfaces ( Keifer 1959b). Found on buds and new leaves, causing necrotic spots which turn purple then black, coalesce and cause premature defoliation ( Flechtmann 1998b).

Known as “erva mate” or “yerba mate”, it occurs naturally or is cultivated as a monoculture ( Oliveira & Waquil 2014). Its leaves are used to prepare the drinks “chimarrão” and “tererê” ( Carvalho 1994).
