Partial results of 19 years of mite collecting on ornamental trees and shrubs, on streets, in parks, in greenery, in botanical gardens and private gardens, in various localities of Hungary are included here. During this survey a new genus, Adventacarus n. gen. and two new species were collected: Adventacarus turulae n. sp. and Abacarus kôrösicsomai n. sp. are described and illustrated from Phyllostachys viridiglaucescens. Both species appeared to be vagrant without causing apparent injuries to the host. The importance of gnathosomal chaetotaxy in the systematics of the eriophyoid mites is emphasized. A new tribe, Adventacarini n. tr. is proposed.
