Material examined

13 females and 2 males on 15 microscope slides (slide number NJAUAcariEriHN128B.1-128B.15), from Phoebe hunanensis Hand.–Mazz. (Lauraceae), Zhangjiajie National Forest Park, Zhangjiajie City, Hunan Province, P.R. China, 29°20'41"N, 110°27'33"E, elevation 420m, 10 July 2013, coll. Qiong Wang, Xiao Han and Jingfeng Guo, deposited as a slide mounted specimen in the Arthropod/Mite Collection of the Department of Entomology, NJAU, Jiangsu Province, China.

Relation to host

Vagrant on lower part of the leaf surface. No damage to the host plant was observed.

Etymology

The specific designation Phoebe is derived from the generic name of the host plant; feminine in gender.

Differential diagnosis

This new species is very similar to Dechela epelis Keifer, 1965, but some quantitative characters can be used to separate them (Table 1).
