Eriophyoid mites are the smallest arthropods living on vascular plants. Representatives of this superfamily can be found on the shoots, foliage, flowers and fruits of herbaceous and woody plants. The majority of the host plants are woody species. An overview is given on the eriophyoid mite fauna of woody forest plants. In Hungary, out of the 238 eriophyoid species 45 are non-indigenous. The most species is recorded from the families Rosaceae and Salicaceae.
