Relationship to host plant. Mites form conspicuous   blisters in the leaves ( Keifer 1953). Galls measuring from 1-5 mm in diameter are seen on both sides of the leaf, but are more prominent on the lower leaf surface. Heavily infested plants were observed in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, where plants presented leaves completely covered by galls ( Flechtmann & Berti-Filho 1994).
