Abstract

The microscopic eriophyoid mites parsitize on the shoots, foliage, flowers and fruits of herbaceous and woody plants. Majority of the host plants is woody species. The authors report the remarkably quick spread of Aceria fraxiniflora on green ash (Fraxinus pennsylvanica). The galls induced by the species have been found at many locations in the capital and 17 counties out of 19. During the surveys the gall mite – first time in Europe – was recorded on white ash (F. americana). The abundance of galls on flowers and fruits may suggest a potential regulation effect on the spontaneous spread of green ash.

Keywords: eriophyid mite, green ash, invasive alien species, passive spread
