Brachytydeus   sp.

A tritonymph of a Brachytydeus   sp. was also found on citrus at Augrabies, Kakamas, Northern Cape Province together with Pronematus ubiquitus   , Triophtydeus immanis   , Kakamasia cataracta   , and Tydeus grabouaei   . It is closely related to the tritonymph of B. monticola   but differs in that the striae are more prominent and smooth and the small, reticulated areas on the dorsum are absent. This single specimen does not justify a description.
