Interpretive Summary: Many popular perennial fruit trees are dispersed across the tropical regions of the Americas, Africa and Asia. The hog plum is a tropical perennial fruit tree with few known insect and mite pest associations. This paper reports the first record of a flat mite species on hog plum trees in Brazil. The information will be useful to scientists, growers, quarantine and extension personnel.

Technical Abstract: This is the first record of Tenuipalpus uvae De Leon (Tenuipalpidae) in Brazil. Specimens were collected from Spondias mombin L. (Anacardiaceae) in the states of Amapa (Northern Brazil) and Pernambuco (northeast).
