The life cycle of three species of Agistemus, including A. cyprius from Spain, A. industani from Egypt and A. floridanus from Florida were studied at three temperatures (18 °C, 25 °C and 30 °C) with two food sources (ice plant pollen and eggs of Panonychus citri). The life tables parameters were compared to determine the effects of these factors on the mites.
Species 1: Acari Stigmaeidae Agistemus industani
Species 2: Acari Stigmaeidae Agistemus cyprius
Species 3: Acari Stigmaeidae Agistemus floridanus
