Abstract:

In the present study, an investigation was carried out to explore the diversity and community structures of phytoseiid mite fauna associated with medicinal plants in four selected locations viz. Ananthagiri, CSIR-CIMAP campus, Kotapally and Eturangaram sanctuary situated in Southern, Northern and Central agroclimatic zones of Telangana. A total of 515 specimens were collected during the present survey belonging to 8 genera and 13 species of which Euseius alstoniae (23%), Amblyseius largoensis (22%), Euseius ovalis (15%), Euseius astrictus (6%) and Phytoseius kapuri (2%) were the most abundant species. Comparing all the survey locations, Eturangaram sanctuary with natural vegetation of medicinal plants revealed maximum diversity of species whereas scanty vegetation of Ananthagiri hills yielded the least diversity of phytoseiid mites.
