Aculus epiphyllus (Nalepa, 1892) is reported from green ash in Europe for the first time. Ash rust mite has never been found on green ash, and we therefore re-describe and illustrate the female and male, and describe the nymph. The species was collected from the underside of the leaflets of the introduced ash species, Fraxinus pennsylvanica Marshall (Oleaceae) in Hungary.
Female of Aculus scutellariae (Canestrini et Massalongo, 1895) is redescribed, male and nymph are described and illustrated. It was collected from Scutellaria hastifolia L. (Fam. Lamiaceae) in Hungary.
Authors give a report on four eriophyoid species which were new for the Hungarian fauna (Aculops berochensis Keifer and Delley; Aculops parakarensis Bagdasarian; Aculus ligustri Keifer; Aculus? crataegumplicans Cotte). Three of them were found on new host-plants.
Accounts are given on the eriophyoid fauna of Hungary. Based on the literature records, a total of 336 mite species are listed from 370 host species of 55 plant families. The families Phytoptidae, Eriophyidae and Diptilomiopidae are represented by 12, 303 and 21 species, respectively.
(Nalepa) are new combinations.
