Specificity of a strain of Neozygites sp. (Zygomycetes: Entomophthorales) to Mononychellus tanajoa (Acari: Tetranychidae)






Experimental and Applied Acarology, 142: 89-94

Specificity of a strain of Neozygites sp. (Zygomycetes: Entomophthorales) to Mononychellus tanajoa (Acari: Tetranychidae)

Neozygites sp. is commonly found infecting the cassava pest Mononychellus tanajoa in all parts of north-eastern Brazil. The introduction of this fungus into other regions requires knowledge of its specificity, especially in relation to natural enemies of different cassava pests. Laboratory tests indicated the development of germination tubes of Neozygites in some females of Tetranychus bastosi and T. urticae, with subsequent formation of a reduced number of hyphal bodies in some T. bastosi.
