Diagnosis. Females and males are distinguished from other phytoseiid species by the combination of characters given in the description of the genus.

Female. Figures 1–7View FIGURES 1 – 7 (15 specimens measured).

Dorsum. Dorsal shield ( Fig 1View FIGURES 1 – 7) strongly convex (as demonstrated by breakage of mounted specimens), mostly smooth, with sparse antero-lateral striae, 16 pairs of lyrifissures and four pairs of pores, 316 (300–337) long and 186 (185–195) wide. Setae j 1 14 (12–16), j 3 17 (15–20), j 4 4 (3–5), j 5 3, j 6 3 (3–5), J 5 4 (4–5), z 2 58 (52–60), z 4 12 (9–14), z 5 4 (4–5), Z 4 53 (45–56), Z 5 46 (42–50), s 4 50 (42–56), S 2 39 (36–45), S 4 10 (9–11), S 5 7 (7–8), r 3 34 (31–37), R 1 10 (10–12). Setae sharp-tipped and smooth, except j 1, z 2, Z 4, Z 5, s 4, S 2 and r 3, serrate.

Venter ( Fig. 2View FIGURES 1 – 7). Base of tritosternum 11 (10–11) long and 9 (9–10) wide proximally; laciniae 56 (52–57), separate for about 50 % of their total length, pilose. Sternal shield smooth, with three pairs of setae and two pairs of lyrifissures, posteriorly eroded, so that setae St 3 inserted on narrow posterolateral remnants of the shield; St 4 on metasternal shield; distances between St 1 -St 3 52 (50–55), St 2 -St 2 52 (50–55). Genital shield smooth; distance between St 5 -St 5 45 (41–47). Ventrianal shield reduced, approximately ovoid, smooth, 73 (64–77) long, 48 (42–52) wide at widest level, with a pair of pre-anal setae (Jv 2) and a pair of small, rounded pre-anal pores, each well posteriad of and slightly laterad of Jv 2 of the same side. Five pairs of opisthogastric setae on unsclerotised cuticle (Jv 1, Jv 4, Jv 5, Zv 1 and Zv 2). Seta Jv 5 slightly shorter to slightly longer than other opisthogastric setae. Ventral setae smooth. With a single pair of metapodal plates, each slightly expanded anterolaterally, probably because of the fusion of the two usual platelets on each side. Peritremal shield fused anteriorly to dorsal shield, almost reaching level of j 1.

Gnathosoma  . Deutosternal groove 4 (3–4) wide ( Fig 4View FIGURES 1 – 7). Movable cheliceral digit 20 (20–21) long, with two teeth; fixed cheliceral digit 21 (21–22) long, with one distal teeth and a pilus dentilis ( Fig. 3View FIGURES 1 – 7).

Spermatheca. ( Fig. 7View FIGURES 1 – 7). Calyx tubular and enlarged distally, 25 long; atrium c-shaped, bifurcate at junction with major duct.

Legs. Macrosetae absent. Chaetotaxy: coxa I: 2; trochanter I: 1, 0/ 1, 0/ 2, 1; femur I: 2, 3 / 1, 2 / 2, 2; genu I: 2, 2 / 1, 2 / 1, 2; tibia I: 1, 2 / 1, 2 / 2, 2; coxa II: 2; trochanter II: 1, 0/ 1, 0/ 2, 1; fêmur II: 1, 3 / 1, 2 / 1, 1; genu II: 2, 2 / 0, 2 / 1, 1; tibia II: 1, 1 / 1, 2 / 1, 1; coxa III: 2; trochanter III: 1, 1 / 0, 2 / 1, 0; genu III: 1, 2 / 0, 2 / 1, 1; tibia III: 1, 1 / 0, 2 / 1, 1; coxa IV: 2; trochanter III: 1, 1 / 0, 2 / 1, 0; genu IV: 1, 2 / 0, 2 / 1, 1; tíbia IV: 1, 1 / 0, 2 / 1, 1 ( Fig. 6View FIGURES 1 – 7).

Male. Figures 8–10View FIGURES 8 – 10 (5 specimens measured)

Dorsum. ( Fig. 8View FIGURES 8 – 10). Dorsal shield pattern similar to female, 275 (269–280) long and 147 (145–150) wide. Setae j 1 9 (9–10), j 3 13 (11–18), j 4 4 (3–4), j 5 3, j 6 5 (4–7), J 5 3, z 2 29 (26–32), z 4 7 (5–11), z 5 4 (4–5), Z 4 18 (16–21), Z 5 20 (20–21), s 4 25 (24–26), S 2 16 (15–17), S 4 9 (7–9), S 5 4 (3–4), r 3 19 (18–21), R 1 11 (10–12). All dorsal setae smooth.

Venter. ( Fig. 9View FIGURES 8 – 10) Sternogenital shield mostly smooth, with few posterolateral striae. Ventrianal shield subtriangular, reticulate, 95 (90–98) long and 119 (115–125) wide at anterior corners, with three pairs of pre-anal setae (Jv 1, Jv 2 and Zv 2), three pairs of lyrifissures and a pair of small, rounded pores. Seta Jv 5 smooth, about as long as or slightly shorter than pre-anal setae. Peritreme r eaching level of z 2.

Chelicerae. ( Fig. 10View FIGURES 8 – 10) Movable cheliceral digit 14 (13–14) long, with one teeth; fixed cheliceral digit 15 (14–15) long, with one teeth; pilus dentilis not visible. Spermatodactyl L-shaped, with shaft 9 (9–10) long, with toe straight, 8 (7–8 long), heel 4 (3–4) wide.

Leg. Macrosetae absent. Chaetotaxy as in female.

Etymology. The name silvaticus  is a Latin word for “of woods”, referring to the presence of this species in different spots of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest.
