Arachnids and Insects

Chapter

Abstract

Investigations on carotenoids in mites have not been numerous but some recent work has been extremely thorough. Most mites examined belong to the group Prostigmata of the sub-order Trombidiformes. The known distribution in this group is given in Table 7.1 from which it is clear that the pigments present can be separated into two groups, those which arise directly and unchanged from the food and those which are oxidative metabolites of β-carotene. In this respect Trombidiformes are similar to many other arthropods (see Chapter 6 and Section 7.2 of this chapter). Carotenoproteins are probably present in Tetranychus spp. [19]. Some predaceous mites also contain carotenoids; these include Anystis sp. [1,2], Erythraeus spp. [1], Balaustium sp. [2] and Phytoseiulus persimilis [12].
