Abstract

Two new spider mites, Tetranychus kanzawai Kishida and Eotetranychus rubiphilus Reck (Trombidiformes: Tetranychidae) were recorded for Turkish phytophagous mite fauna. While E. rubiphilus was obtained from Prunus domestica L. and Prunus cerasus L. (Rosaceae), T. kanzawai was found only on P. domestica in different municipalities of Ordu province, Turkey.
