Abstract


Microtrombidium pusillum (Hermann, 1804) is described based on both active postlarval forms and larvae. Larvae of M. pusillum were obtained by experimental rearing from a field-collected female. In this study, all active stages of M. pusillum are described and figured based on specimens collected from grassy soil from Erzincan and Gümüşhane provinces. This species is new record for the Turkish mite fauna.
