Brevipalpus yothersi on blueberry (abundance) leaf - adult (a), egg (b), larva (c), protonymph
After the larvae eclosion, the duration, in days, of each mite developmental stage was observed: larvae, protonymph
, deutonymph, adult-egg period, and the longevity of males and females.
However, the protonymph
and deutonymph phases were similar at 25 and 30[degrees]C.

tanajoa was followed to adulthood, with daily observations of the larval, protochrysalis, protonymph
, deutochrysalis, deutonymph, teleiochrysalis, and adult stages to verify the succession to the next stage, as characterized by the presence of exuviae.
The life cycle of water mites is complex and includes the egg, larva, protonymph
, deutonymph, tritonymph, and adult.
The deutonymph or hypopus is a developmental instar of mites, and in H propus it is one of 5 juvenile stages including the prelarva, larva, protonymph
, deutonymph, and tritonymph.
The mean durations of larval, protonymph
, deutonymph of female and male stages were 1.
the first, second and third quiescent is between the larva and protonymph
and deutonymp, deutonymph and adult respectively.
Similar scales were reported by Judson & Hardy (2001) on a protonymph
from Tobago, and from only near the posterior margin of the carapace in C.
Snake mites have a five-stage life cycle: egg, larva, protonymph
, deutonymph, and adult.
The newly emerged protonymph
was slightly larger in size, pale yellowish green in colour and octapod in nature.
