Formerly only four species of the family Tetranychidae had been recorded from Tasmania. Collections of mites from both introduced and native plants have revealed that the family is represented by ten genera of which two are new. Fifteen species, five being new, are now recorded from the State. The following new genera and species are described:- New genera-Synonychus, Tylonychus. New species-Synonychus eucalypti, Eutetranychus acaciae, Tylonychus tasmaniensis, Eotetranychus hudsoni and Tetranychus rhagodiae. In addition the male of Schizonobia sycophanta Wom. is described for the first time.
