Abstract

Three new species of grass-feeding eriophyoid mites (Acari: Prostigmata: Eriophyoidea) are described from Croatia: Acaralox croatiae n. sp., inhabiting purple moorgrass, Molinia coerulea (L.) Moench; Aculodes festucae n. sp., inhabiting tall fescue, Festuca arundinacea Schreb.; and Aculodes sylvatici n. sp., inhabiting false brome, Brachypodium sylvaticum (Huds.) Roem. et Schult. The three new species are first records of eriophyoid mites infesting Poaceae in Croatia. These records increase the current documented number of eriophyoid species in Croatia from 28 to 31.
