Abstract
Different genotypes of varroa have been described which may explain reported differences in the degree of virulence on infested hosts. Delfinado-Baker (1988) designated three biotypes of varroa based solely on reports of injuries caused by the mites and mite behaviour. Molecular variation in varroa populations showed differences between mites collected from Brazil and Germany based on isozyme structure (Issa, 1989, Rosenkranz et al., 1989).
