The oriental red mite, Eutetranychus orientalis, an important pest of citrus and other crops in many parts of the world, has been in Queensland for at least 30 years. We review Australian collections of oriental red mite, clarify confusion over its name and pest status, discuss its potential biological control agents, and provide a key to differentiate known Australian species of Eutetranychus and the African red mite, E. africanus (Tucker).
