Broad mite and eggs on Gerbera

Broad mite and eggs on Gerbera

Broad mite eggs are elliptical but are covered by small whitish bumps that look like rows of diamonds. Broad mite eggs tend to be laid so they are more exposed on the underside of the leaf or stem surface than cyclamen mite eggs.

See the eggs in relationship to the broad mite in this photo.
