During the course of the present study, galled and ungalled leaves (N = 30) were collected randomly from different branches of P. pinnata L. trees growing in the Calicut University Campus, Malappuram (Dt.) of Kerala, India (identification of plant specimen by Dr. A. K. Pradeep, Asst. Professor, Department of Botany, University of Calicut). The collected samples were put in polythene bags, sealed and brought to the laboratory for subsequent studies. The galls were dissected with a sharp blade and examined under a Labovision KS z0850 Stereo-Zoom microscope, to observe mite population. Galls with parasitic animals, predators, or pathogenic infections etc. were totally discarded and not considered for subsequent analysis.
