The effect of temperature on the development of the predatory mite Bdella tropica Atyeo preying on Xenylla longauda Folsom (Collembola: Hypogastruridae) was examined in the laboratory. The duration of different developmental stages of B. tropica became shorter as the temperature increased from 20°C to 32°C. The optimum development temperature was between 24°C and 28°C. The mite could not complete development at 35°C or 18°C.
