A survey conducted during November 1994-December 1995 in West Bengal on mite species infesting fruit trees, vegetables and ornamental plants is presented. Of the 69 species identified, belonging to 13 families under 25 genera, 31 species are phytophagous, 35 are predatory and 3 are fungus-associated. Of these, 14 infest vegetables, 44 fruit trees and 22 ornamental plants. Eight species are identified as injurious pests and 6 as important predators.
