|Description:||The essential oil (EO) from different genotypes of Lippia gracilis Schauer (Verbenaceae) present two distinctive chemotypes containing either thymol or its isomer carvacrol as major compounds, both of which have proven bioactivity against several agricultural pests. Recently, we have shown that L. gracilis accession LGRA 106 and its major compound thymol are toxic and repellent against the coconut mite, Aceria guerreronis Keifer (Acari: Eriophyidae), a key pest of coconut plantations in Asia, Africa and America. Since intraspecific variation affects the chemical composition of EO and hence, its bioactivity, here we assessed the acaricidal and repellent effects of L. gracilis accession LGRA109 to A. guerreronis. Leaves of this accession contain carvacrol (49.35%) as major compound. The LC50 of the EO and of carvacrol estimated for A. guerreronis were 28.01 and 6.84 mg/mL, respectively. Carvacrol, at its LC50, as well as the EO and carvacrol at their LC99, repelled the mite. Our results indicated that carvacrol and the EO of L. gracilis accession LGRA109 were bioactive against A. guerreronis; however, the EO was less effective than its major compound.|
