The male of Transeius avetianae (Arutunjan & Ohandjanian), collected in Zanjan Province, Iran is described for the first time. The female is re-described from a collection large enough (n = 67) to examine morphometric variations. The measurements of female morphological characters collected from Iran are compared with those given in the original description from Armenia. A key to the species of Transeius recorded from Iran is also given. © 2012 Systematic & Applied Acarology Society. Source

Amblyseius meghriensis Arutunjan (1968), collected in Lorestan Province, is a new species record for the Iranian phytoseiid fauna. The female is re-described and the male is described for the first time. The morphological characters of the female specimens collected from Iran compared with those given in the original description from Armenia. Illustrations and measurements are also given for the Typhlodromus (Anthoseius) haiastanius (Arutunjan), another new species record for Iran. We have found that the presence of preanal pores can be variable in T. (A.) khosrovensis Arutunjan. The significance of this morphological character in the taxonomy of the subgenus Anthoseius is discussed. A key to the species of Amblyseius recorded from Iran is also given. © 2011 Taylor & Francis.

A checklist and a key are given for the 62 species of Phytoseiidae of Turkey. Two species Neoseiulus marginatus (Wainstein) and Transeius wainsteini (Gomelauri), which are new records from Turkey, as well as Transeius herbarius (Wainstein) are redescribed. Amblyseius enab El-Badry, Amblyseius rusticana Athias-Henriot, Typhlodromus tenuis Westerboer, and Typhlodromus intercalaris Livshitz and Kuznetsov are recognized as suspected junior synonyms of Amblyseius swirskii Athias-Henriot, Amblyseiella setosa Muma, T. herbarius (Wainstein), and Typhlodromus (Anthoseius) invectus Chant, respectively. We accept a previous conclusion on the species concept of Phytoseius plumifer (Canestrini and Fanzago) and consider removing Phytoseius finitimus Ribaga from synonymy with P. plumifer. © 2011 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.

The effect of seven constant temperatures of 15, 20, 25, 27, 30, 35 and 37°C on developmental time of Neoseiulus barkeri Hughes were determined in laboratory conditions under 65%± 5% RH and a photoperiod of 12: 12 (L: D) h on nymphal stages of Tetranychus urticae Koch. Total developmental time of females (from egg to adult emergence) at the above-mentioned temperatures was 26.59, 14.43, 6.32, 5.64, 4.59, 3.98 and 4.67 days, respectively. Developmental rate of the N. barkeri increased as temperature increased from 15 to 35°C, but declined at 37°C. A linear and two nonlinear models were fitted to developmental rate of immature stages of N. barkeri to predict the developmental rate as a function of temperature, as well as to estimate the thermal constant (K) and critical temperatures (i.e., T min, T opt and T max). The estimated values of the T min and K for total developmental time using the linear model were 12.07°C and 86.20 degree-days (DD), respectively. The T min and T max estimated by the Sharpe-Schoolfield-Ikemoto (SSI) model were 11.90°C and 37.41°C, respectively. The estimated T opt for overall immature stage development of N. barkeri by the Lactin and SSI models were 33.89°C and 24.51°C, respectively. Based on the biological criteria of model evaluation, the linear and SSI models were found to be the best models for describing the developmental rate of overall immature stages of N. barkeri and estimating the temperature thresholds. © 2012 The Authors Journal compilation © Institute of Zoology, Chinese Academy of Sciences.

Neoseiulus paspalivorus is a new record for Iranian mite fauna. It is re-described and illustrated. Some setal lengths of Proprioseiopsis messor collected in Iran show deviations from those of the holotype and re-descriptions from the other countries. This species is re-described and illustrated based on the material collected in Iran. © Ostovan H. et al. Source
