A survey of phytoseiidae living in sand-pine litter on Pliocene or Pleistocene terraces in peninsular Florida has indicated that the populations were composed entirely of mites belonging to the sub-family Amblyseiinae. Altogether 18 species were collected, but only 8 were common. Among the common species, 5 seemed to be essentially restricted to a sand-pine litter habitat, 4 were not uniformly distributed among the terraces, and 2 did not attain peak populations during the winter or spring as is usual for phytoseiids.
