Aceria tosichella

Aceria tosichella, commonly known as the wheat curl mite (WCM),[3][4] is a global cereal pest[5] and a vector for spreading and transmission of viruses like wheat streak mosaic virus (WSMV)[6][7] and wheat mosaic virus (WMoV)[8][9]


The distribution of this eriophyid mite is observed mostly in the wheat producing areas of Europe, North and South America[10][11][12][13]
