Abstract

Tetranychus ogmophallos n.sp. (Acari: Tetranychidae) and Aceria pintoi n.sp. (Acari: Eriophyidae)are described from Arachis pintoi (Krap. & Greg.)(Fabaceae). Since T. ogmophallos thrives on peanuts (Arachis hypogoea L.) and on Arachis prostrata Benth. it is suggested that stolons of A. pintoi should not be used as a means of propagation since they can easily carry a potential pest to at least one economic crop, peanuts.
