Abstract

Pyemotid mites are parasitoids of various insects and are of potential as biocontrol agents. Three New Zealand new species of the genus Pyemotes are described in this paper: Pyemotes cumberi sp. nov. parasitic on Procecidochares utilis (Diptera: Tephritidae) in Auckland, Pyemotes martini sp. nov. parasitic on eggs of Scolypopa (Hemiptera: Ricaniidae) in the Northland, and Pyemotes mayae sp. nov. parasitic on scolytid larvae (Coleoptera) in Auckland. Keys to both adult males and females of these three new species are provided.
