Introduction

A few families of mesostigmatid mites (Acari: Parasitiformes) and considerably numerous families of prostigmatid mites (Acari: Acariformes) inhabit the foliage of plants. These mesostigmatids and prostigmatids are either predators, herbivores, fungivores or scavengers (Walter and Proctor, 1999). Over the past few decades several acarological papers have been devoted to the study of mite fauna of Hungary (Fain and Ripka, 1998a, 1998b; Gabryś and Mąkol, 1991, 1996; Haitlinger, 2007; Ripka and Szabó, 2010, 2011; Ripka et al., 2002, 2005, 2013, 2020a, 2020b, 2022; Szabó and Németh, 2007; Szabó et al., 2009, 2010, 2013a, 2013b; Tempfli et al., 2012, 2014, 2015; Ueckermann and Ripka, 2016). The hyporder Parasitengona is one of the most diverse groups of the order Trombidiformes, comprising about 15 superfamilies (Zhang, 2010; Zhang et al., 2011). The faunistic knowledge on the three superfamilies of terrestrial Parasitengona (Acari: Prostigmata: Calyptostomatoidea, Erythraeoidea, Trombidioidea) present in Hungary is mainly confined to some nature reserves of Hungary. Representatives of terrestrial Parasitengona are distinctly rare on arboreal plants. The majority of the previous records include data from herbaceous plants. From the terrestrial habitats of Bátorliget Nature Reserve, Gabryś and Mąkol (1991) reported 42 species belonging to six families (Calyptostomatidae, Smarididae, Erythraeidae, Trombellidae, Trombiculidae and Trombidiidae). As a result of a survey in the Bükk National Park, 44 taxa of seven families (Calyptostomatidae, Smarididae, Erythraeidae, Johnstonianidae, Microtrombidiidae, Trombiculidae and Trombidiidae) were reported (Gabryś and Mąkol, 1996). On the foliage of 12 ligneous plant species, Allothrombium pulvinum Ewing (Trombidiidae), while on the foliage of three ornamental tree species, Charletonia singularis (Oudemans) (Erythraeidae) were found in urban habitats (Ripka et al., 2002). A species of the genus Hauptmannia Oudemans (Erythraeidae) ectoparasitic on thrips was collected from green pepper plantation (Ripka et al., 2005). From herbaceous plants, Haitlinger (2007) reported seven erythraeid, two trombidiid and one tanaupodid species collected in different counties of Hungary. One new erythraeid species, Erythraeus budapestensis Fain et Ripka, and two new trombidiid species, Podothrombium exiguum Fain et Ripka and Podothrombium pannonicum Fain et Ripka were described from ornamental tree and shrub species in urban habitats of Budapest (Fain and Ripka, 1998a, 1998b). Larval stage of all three mentioned species was collected from different aphid hosts (Hemiptera: Aphidoidea). From herbaceous plants, two erythraeids, Erythraeus budapestensis and Leptus clethrionomydis Haitlinger were already reported (Ripka and Szabó, 2010). Mites of the family Erythraeidae are generally predators at postlarval stages, feeding upon various arthropods. However larvae of most erythraeids are ectoparasites of different arthropods including soft bodied insects, e.g. aphids, bugs, flies, grasshoppers, etc.

Contrary to the tydeoid, cheyletid and cunaxid mites, the knowledge on plant-inhabiting eupalopsellid mites is scanty.

The members of the family Phytoseiidae (Acari: Mesostigmata) are the most frequent predatory mites living on plants. Out of the 2557 known valid phytoseiid species worldwide (Moraes et al., 2004; Demite et al., 2021), hitherto 76 species have been recorded from Hungary (Ripka, 2006; Szabó et al., 2013a; Demite et al., 2021). The genus Neoseiulus is one of the largest genera, and represented by twenty three species in the Hungarian fauna, viz. Neoseiulus agrestis (Karg), N. alustoni (Livshitz et Kuznetzov), N. amicus (Chant), N. astutus (Beglyarov), N. alpinus (Schweizer), N. bellinus (Womersley), N. bicaudus (Wainstein), N. brevispinus (Kennett), Ncallunae (Willmann), N. californicus (McGregor), N. cucumeris (Oudemans), N. herbarius (Wainstein), N. huron (Chant et Hansell), N. marginatus (Wainstein), N. marinus (Willmann), N. phragmitidis (Bozai), N. populi (Bozai), N. reductus (Wainstein), N. salicicola (Bozai), Nsetulus (Fox), N. umbraticus (Chant), N. versutus (Beglyarov) and N. zwoelferi (Dosse) (Ripka, 2006; Szabó et al., 2013a).

In Hungary a total of 12 phytoseiid species have been documented from Rubus spp., namely Amblyseius andersoni (Chant), Anthoseius occiduus Karg, A. rhenanus (Oudemans), Euseius finlandicus (Oudemans), Kampimodromus aberrans (Oudemans), Neoseiulus alpinus (Schweizer), Neoseiulus reductus (Wainstein), Phytoseius echinus Wainstein et Arutunjan, P. juvenis Wainstein et Arutunjan, P. macropilis (Banks), Typhlodromus commenticius Livshitz et Kuznetzov and T. pyri Scheuten. Out of these, P. juvenis was reported with the highest population density from Rubus spp. (Ripka et al., 2020a).

The aim of this study is to present new data to the mite diversity of vascular plants. This article is the continuation of the faunistic studies of the authors and the latest part of a large project focusing on the mite community of plants.

Material and methods

Samples of different plant species living in different habitats were collected in plastic bags during the growing season in 2000–2021. All Rubus samples were collected by G. Király. Plant material (upper and lower surfaces of the leaves, petioles, shoots, buds, bark, flowers, galls, etc.) was examined under a dissection binocular microscope (Zeiss Stemi 2000-C).

Using a fine minuten pin, mite specimens found on the plants were put directly into lactic acid. After clearing the specimens in lactic acid (for 2–4 weeks at room temperature to obtain the desired extent of clearing), they were mounted on microscope slides in Keifer's F-medium (Keifer, 1975). The slide preparations were dried (for 4–6 weeks) at room temperature, then sealed with commercial nail varnish (Upton, 1991). Specimens were examined with a phase-contrast compound microscope (Nikon Eclipse E600). For acarid mite determination, the keys of Fain (1982) and Zhang (2003) were used. The concepts of the taxonomy and species identification of mesostigmatid mites were based mainly on Karg's key (1993) and partially on keys of Chant and Yoshida-Shaul (1987) and Mašán (2022). For geographical distribution of the mites the world catalogue databases of Beron (2008, 2017, 2020, 2021) and Demite et al. (2021) were followed.

The phytoseiid and melicharid mites; the cunaxid, eupalopsellid and tydeoid mites; the tenuipalpid and oribatid mites; and the eriophyoid, cheyletid, acarid and winterschmidtiid mites were identified by Á. Szabó, A. Kaźmierski, J. Kontschán, and G. Ripka, respectively.

Nomenclature of host plants was used in accordance with Király (2009), excluding Rubus that generally follows Kurtto et al. (2010), and, for some recently described species, Trávníček et al. (2018) and Sochor et al. (2019).

Results

The current study presents recent findings of mites collected from vascular plants (e.g. ornamental trees and shrubs, and herbs of streets, squares, parks, botanical gardens, private gardens, forests, fields and green-belt in cities), and at the same time follows a series of publications on the eriophyoid mites of Hungary and Austria, too. For each taxa listed collecting data (i.e. host plant species, locality and date) and whenever useful, extensive faunistic information was given (for detailed records of localities see Table 1). In this research altogether 16 parasitiform mite species from two families and 21 acariform mite species belonging to 13 families have been reported. The data presented extend our knowledge on microhabitat preferences and distribution areas of mite species, and reveals a degree of similarity of Hungarian mite fauna to the fauna of different parts of Europe.

Family Phytoseiidae Berlese

Genus Amblyseius Berlese

Amblyseius andersoni (Chant, 1957)

It was described in Canada and is a widespread cosmopolitan species in almost the whole Europe. In the course of this study A. andersoni was collected from the leaves of two bramble species, viz. Rubus angustipaniculatus Holub (Rosaceae) at St Jakob in Rosental (Austria, Carinthia), 0.3 km SE of Winkl, N of the Karawanken-highway, in forest clearings, and Rubus vatavensis Žila et Trávn. (Rosaceae) in Engelhartszell (Austria, Upper Austria), in the big curve of the road nr. 136 above the village, in forest fringes. On both hosts another phytoseiid species, Phytoseius juvenis was collected, too (Table 1).

Genus Neoseiulus Hughes

The genus Neoseiulus belongs to the largest phytoseiid subfamily Amblyseiinae. Two new representatives of this genus previously unreported from Hungary were collected from Salvia nemorosa L. (Lamiaceae) in Vászoly, Öreghegy (Hungary, Veszprém County), viz. Neoseiulus dungeri (Karg) and Neoseiulus tauricus (Livshitz et Kuznetzov).

Neoseiulus dungeri (Karg, 1977) NH (= new for Hungary)

The type locality of this species is in the valley of river Leutra, close to the city of Jena (Germany, Thuringia), where the holotype was collected with soil trap in Seslerietum plant association (Karg, 1977). No other record was known subsequetly. N. dungeri (Fig. 1) belongs to the cangaro subgroup in the genus Neoseiulus; closely related species in Europe is N. alustoni. In Hungary it was collected in a seminatural habitat at the village of Vászoly, Öreghegy (Hungary, Veszprém County, Balaton Uplands) from the leaves of Salvia nemorosa L. (Lamiaceae) together with the gall-inducing Aceria salviae (Nalepa) (Acari: Eriophyidae) (Ripka, 2016). Neoseiulus dungeri is new to the Hungarian fauna.

Neoseiulus tauricus (Livshitz et Kuznetzov, 1972) NH

It was described based on specimens collected in Crimea from different herbaceous plants (Teucrium polium, Stachys cretica, Asperula humifusa, Achillea sp.). Subsequently, the presence of Neoseiulus tauricus was recorded in Armenia, Azerbaijan, China – Inner Mongolia, France, Greece, Iran and Ukraine (Moraes et al., 2004; Demite et al., 2021). Neoseiulus tauricus (Fig. 2) belongs to the ceratoni subgroup in the genus Neoseiulus; closely related species from Europe are N. agrestis and N. vasoides (Karg).

Citation: Acta Phytopathologica et Entomologica Hungarica 2022; 10.1556/038.2022.00160

The species was collected from the leaves of Salvia nemorosa by the senior author in seminatural habitat near Vászoly, Öreghegy (Hungary, Veszprém County, Balaton Uplands), in association with Aceria salviae (Ripka, 2016). This record is the first occurrence of N. tauricus in Hungary.

Neoseiulus marginatus (Wainstein, 1961)

The species was described based on specimens collected in Kazakhstan from Teucrium sp. It was subsequently recorded in Algeria, Armenia, Azerbaijan, France, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Iran, Israel, Kazakhstan, Kenya, Latvia, Moldova, Russia, Serbia, Turkey, Turkmenistan and Ukraine (Moraes et al., 2004; Demite et al., 2021). In Hungary, it was collected from Verbena officinalis L. (Verbenaceae) growing in roadside vegetation in Alsó-Rákoshegy, Budapest (Central Hungary). Acaralox bognari Ripka (Acari: Eriophyidae) and a Balaustium species (Acari: Erythraeidae) co-occurred with N. marginatus (Ripka, 2015a). On Verbena officinalis two other phytoseiid mites were found in Budapest as well, Amblyseius andersoni and Euseius finlandicus.

Neoseiulus cucumeris (Oudemans, 1930)

It was described from Cucumis melo in France and reported from all continents except the Antarctica (Demite et al., 2021). From Petrorhagia prolifera (L.) P.W. Ball et Heywood (Caryophyllaceae) and Linaria genistifolia (L.) Mill. (Plantaginaceae) living in seminatural habitat, Neoseiulus cucumeris was collected in Budapest, Soroksár (Central Hungary). Anthoseius rhenanus (Acari: Phytoseiidae) and Aceria feketeistvani Ripka (Acari: Eriophyidae) co-occurred with N. cucumeris on P. prolifera (Ripka, 2016).

Genus Phytoseius Ribaga

Phytoseius juvenis Wainstein et Arutunjan, 1970

Phytoseius juvenis proved to be the most frequent and abundant phytoseiid mite species on brambles collected from the leaves of five Rubus taxa: Rubus angustipaniculatus in St Jakob in Rosental (Austria, Carinthia), 0.3 km SE of Winkl, N of the Karawanken-highway, in forest clearings; Rubus bifrons Vest (Rosaceae) in Nagylózs (Hungary, Győr-Moson-Sopron County), 3.2 km NE of the village, Haraszt Forest, in sunny forest fringes; Rubus ser. Radula (Focke) Focke (Rosaceae) in Aschach a.d. Donau (Austria, Upper Austria), in forest fringes at the hydroelectric power station; Rubus rudis Weihe (Rosaceae) in Otterskirchen (Germany, Bavaria), 0.4 km E of Besensandbach, in forest fringes on the left bank of the Danube; Rubus vatavensis in Hofkirchen im Mühlkreis (Austria, Upper Austria), from bushes close to the Danube W of Marsbach; R. vatavensis Engelhartszell (Austria, Upper Austria), in the big curve of the road nr. 136 above the village, in forest fringes.

Genus Typhloseiulus Chant et McMurtry

Typhloseiulus peculiaris (Kolodochka, 1980)

The species was described from Tilia tomentosa Moench in Moldova. It is known from Greece, the Czech Republic, Iran, Moldova and Turkey (Demite et al., 2021). However, Kontschán et al. (2014) recently recorded it from oaks close to Óbarok (Central Hungary, Fejér County), but not referenced at international level (Demite et al., 2021). Our specimens were collected from Quercus cerris L. (Fagaceae) in an oak forest, near Mátrafüred (Hungary, Heves County).

Family Melicharidae Hirschmann

Genus Proctolaelaps Berlese

The genus Proctolaelaps includes nearly 90 described species. They occur in association with bark beetles, bumblebees and other insects, in nests of birds and mammals, in flowers visited by hummingbirds, in various decaying organic substances, or are synanthropic (OConnor and Klimov, 2012). Some species feed on small arthropods (including acarid mites), nematodes, fungi, or pollen (Nawar, 1995). Adults of several species are phoretic on insects. Many species are cosmopolitan (Halliday et al., 1998).

Proctolaelaps drosophilae Karg, Baker et Jenkinson 1995 NH

Proctolaelaps drosophilae was described by Karg et al. (1995) and recently redescribed in detail by Abo-Shnaf and Moraes (2016) using specimens from the Drosophila culture (Diptera: Drosophilidae) maintained in a laboratory at the University of Leeds in England. It is probably a non-native species introduced to Europe (Mašán, 2022). In Hungary it was collected in Debrecen-Dózsa (Eastern Hungary, Hajdú-Bihar County) from the decaying root of sugar beet infected with Fusarium sp., in association with histiostomatid mites (Acari: Histiostomatidae). It is the first occurrence of Proctolaelaps drosophilae in Hungary (Figs 36).

Superorder Acariformes Reuter

Family Erythraeidae Robineau-Desvoidy

Genus Abrolophus Berlese

Abrolophus quisquiliarus (Hermann, 1804)

From the leaves of Agrimonia eupatoria L. (Rosaceae) a trombidiid and an erythraeid species were identified in Mesteri (Western Hungary, Vas County), viz. a larva of Allothrombium fuliginosum (Hermann) and an orange-coloured deutonymph of Abrolophus quisquiliarus, respectively. Both species co-occurred with Aculus castriferrei Ripka (Acari: Eriophyidae) and Tydeus reticoxus Ueckermann (Acari: Tydeidae) (Ripka, 2014; Ripka et al., 2022). Abrolophus quisquiliarus is known from Austria, Belgium, England, France, Finland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Poland, Russia, Serbia, Spain, Switzerland and the Netherlands (Beron, 2008, 2017).

Genus Balaustium von Heyden

From Verbena officinalis (growing in roadside vegetation), a reddish female of the genus Balaustium was collected in Budapest (Central Hungary). It co-occurred with Neoseiulus marginatus and Acaralox bognari (Ripka, 2015a).
