Tydeid mites are commonly present on vegetation, but have been studied very little. This paper mainly concerns possible sources of nutrition of two species of California tydeids, Tydeus bakeri and Lorryia ferulus, of which the former is described in this paper. Further information is given on general biology, on the various nymphal stages, and on possible economic significance.
