Abstract

A new species of phytoseiid, Cocoseius palmarum Gondim, Jr., Moraes & McMurtry n. sp. is described from specimens collected on Arecaceae in northeastern Brazil. Until now, the genus included only C. elsalvador Denmark and Andrews, 1981, collected from the arecaceous plants Cocos nucifera L. and Sabal palmetto (Walter). The genus Cocoseius is redefined taking into account the new species here described.
