Abstract

This paper reviews various aspects of the biology of Allothrombium ovatum Zhang & Xin (Acari: Trombidiidae) in Shaanxi, China, including life history, overwintering, adult feeding behaviour and range, oviposition, post-embryonic development, larva-host relationships and population dynamics. The use of A. ovatum larvae in the biocontrol of Aphis gossypii is discussed.
