Description: Infections of Tetranychus evansi BAKER t~ PRITCHARD by Triplosporium sp. were observed on tomatoes from April through June of 1979 in Petrolina (Pernambuco), Brazil. Apparently, the pathogenic effect of the fungus together with the direct effect of the rain are important factors in reducing mite populations. The morphological characteristics of this species are described and compared with those of other mite-infecting Triplosporium spp. The taxonomic status of this fungus on the specific and generic levels is discussed
