Eotetranychus sexmaculatus (Riley) is one of the most important pests of rubber trees, with a wide geographical distribution and heavy infestation. In order to study its genetic diversity and genetic differentiation, the mitochondrial COI gene sequence was used to analyze the genetic structure of 165 individuals from 11 different geographical populations collected from rubber trees in Hainan, Yunnan and Hanoi (Vietnam). The obtained mitochondrial COI gene fragment of the six-pointed spider mites was 658 bp in length. There were 30 variable sites, including 15 simple information points, 15 single mutation sites, and 15 haplotypes. The FST value between populations was 0.34698, the Nm value was 0.47, and the GST value was 0.19660, indicating that there was genetic differentiation in the 11 populations of E. sexmaculatus (Riley).

Key words: Eotetranychus sexmaculatus (Riley), COI, geographic population, genetic differentiation
