Abstract

Se presenta el registro de hembras del ácaro blanco Polyphagotarsonemus latus (Banks, 1909) (Acari: Prostigmata, Tarsonemidae) sujetadas a las patas y/o tórax de adultos de la “mosca blanca” Bemisia tabaci Sensu lato (Gennadius, 1889) (Hemiptera: Aleyrodidae), capturados sobre plantas de ají (Capsicum spp.) y berenjena (Solanum melongena L.) cultivadas en compostaje dentro de una vivienda en la ciudad de Coro, estado Falcón, Venezuela. La asociación simbiótica entre P. latus y la mosca blanca pudiera considerarse como de tipo forética. PALABRAS CLAVE: Ácaro blanco, agricultura urbana, mosca blanca, simbiosis, Venezuela. ABSTRACT The broad mite Polyphagotarsonemus latus (Banks, 1909) (Acari: Prostigmata, Tarsonemidae) is herein recorded attached to legs and/or thorax of adults of the whitefly Bemisia tabaci Sensu lato (Gennadius, 1889) (Hemiptera: Aleroydidaea), collected on sweetpepper (Capsicum spp. L.) and eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) grown on compost into a dwelling of Coro city, Falcon State, Venezuela. The symbiotic association of P. latus with the whiteflie could be considered as phoretic. . KEY WORDS: Broad mite, urban agriculture, whitefly, symbiosis, Venezuela
