Subject: 	Tydeids

To all:

   Does anyone have any knowledge of Tydeids on Apples?  Bayan, A. (1986) 
wrote a paper about this topic, but the study took place in Lebanon.  He 
noted that Orthotydeus californicus (Banks) and O. caudatus  were present 
on apple leaves in this local.  Additionally, Orthotydeus lambi  has been 
found in Northeastern US on grape leaves by English-Loeb (1998).  What I am 
hoping for is something I can use for visual confirmation, i.e. digital 
picture, slide etc(I will purchase if need be), of Tydeids.  Can anyone help?

Subject: publications on Ereynetidae


Dear colleagues,

I am looking for publications on mites, which may kill snails as a result of

parasitism. What I collected from juvenile Mandarina sp. (probably aureola) and

Ogasawarana sp. look ereynetids but it is difficult to get to their species names for

any mites kill and parasitize snails.


Thank you in advance for your help.
