Abstract

The tomato red spider mite, Tetranychus evansi, is an important invasive pest of solanaceous plants worldwide. China is a potentially suitable region for T. evansi but there was no official record of its distribution. In this study, we reported five new records of T. evansi from eggplant, tomato and cucumber in southern and southwest China. The invasion of T. evansi constitutes a new threat to solanaceous crops in mainland China.
