SYMPHYLIDS IN ROSES OF ECUADOR


Carlos Andres Bolanos-carriel

Abstract


Flowers are considered the first non- traditional export product in Ecuador.Aphids and mites are the most common arthropod pests on roses.  Little is known about the effect of myriapod-like animals on rose production. Individuals with oval-shaped head, Long filiform-like antennae and 3 to 3.5 millimeters in size were detected in commercial flower greenhouses of Ecuador.  Although the incidence of the pest was very low, there was a high level of infestation in the spot of soil where the animals were detected.  More information is needed about the species of symphylids affecting rose plants in commercial greenhouses of Ecuador.
