The Tenuipalpidae is a well defined monophyletic group, however the phylogenetic relationships between the genera in this family have been difficult to discern. A suite of maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood analyses, including bayesian methods, were performed on a morphological dataset in an attempt to establish a well supported phylogeny for this important group of phytophagous mites.
