Although Eriophyoidea is one of the most important phytophagous mite taxa owing to its negative impact on plants, reports on associations between occurrences of eriophyoid species are scarce. The aim of this paper is to test the hypothesis that the occurrence of one species is correlated with the occurrence of another in some predictive manner. Analyses are carried out for two popular coniferous trees in Poland, i.e., Norway spruce (Picea abies) and Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris). Observations were made in four locations in Poland, from three age groups of trees, namely adult trees (thirty 15-cm shoot samples from each of ten trees), young trees (ten 15-cm shoot samples from each of ten trees) and seedlings (100 whole-seedling samples). The associations were estimated by Yule's V index. Among four eriophyoid species observed on Scots pine, and the same number of species on Norway spruce, in general no association pattern was observed. It means that their occurrence is independent. The most likely explanation for the absence of co-occurrence is the abundance of microhabitats on coniferous trees for eriophyoid mites, combined with the low mite density on these plant hosts.
