notes

on Geranium sangineum lives a second Aceria species: A. dolichosoma.

By, among others, Dauphin & Aniotsbehere, this species is also associated with Malva. Stănescu (2009a) cites the species from Malva hungarica (“Lavatera thuringiaca”). Probably these associations refer to Aceria gymnoprocta.
