New species and new records of mites of the family Laelapidae (Acari: Mesostigmata) associated with ants in Iran
A collection of mites in the family Laelapidae associated with scarabaeid beetles in Iran probably do not play a major role as biological control agents of pest scarabs, but the ecological relationship between these mites and their beetle hosts has not been analysed.
Two new larval erythraeine mites (Acari: Erythraeidae) from Iran
The key to the world species of Zaracarus is provided and the illustrations and described from Karaj, Iran are illustrated and described.
Drastic underestimation of amphipod biodiversity in the endangered Irano-Anatolian and Caucasus biodiversity hotspots
Molecular species delimitation methods are used to quantify cryptic diversity of the montane amphipods in the Irano-Anatolian and Caucasus biodiversity hotspots and demonstrate that Amphipod biodiversity is drastically underestimated.
The false spider mites of the genus Cenopalpus Pritchard & Baker (Acari: Tenuipalpidae) from Iran.
Four new species of the genus Cenopalpus Pritchard and Baker are described from Iran, namely C. irani reaches high population density and is widespread, and six species are re-described.
Effect of host plants on developmental time and life table parameters of Amphitetranychus viennensis (Acari: Tetranychidae)
Results indicated that black cherry might be the most suitable plant for hawthorn spider mite due to the shorter developmental period, longer adult longevity, higher reproduction, and intrinsic rate of natural increase, while Cherry was the least suitable host plant.
Fitness of Tetranychus urticae Koch (Acari: Tetranychidae) on different soybean cultivars: biology and fertility life-tables
ABSTRACT The quality of the host plant affects the life-history traits of plant-feeding arthropods. The effect of several soybean cultivars on the fitness of Tetranychus urticae was assayed by
A new genus and species of larval Neothrombiidae (Acari: Trombidioidea) from Iran
Abstract Southcottella nematii gen. et sp. nov. (Acari: Neothrombiidae) is described and illustrated from larvae ectoparasitic on adults of Gryllus domesticus L. (Orthoptera: Gryllidae) from Ahwaz,
A new species of larval Erythraeus (Zaracarus) (Acari: Erythraeidae) from Turkey
Abstract Erythraeus (Zaracarus) aydinicus n. sp. is described and illustrated from larvae ectopara - sitic on Empoasca sp. (Homoptera: Cicadellidae) from Aydin, Turkey.
Interactions of two natural enemies of Tetranychus urticae, the fungal entomopathogen Beauveria bassiana and the predatory mite, Phytoseiulus persimilis
Fertility life table parameters of predatory mites fed on T. urticae treated by B. bassiana at different time intervals showed that T, R 0, λ and r m are strongly affected by the fungus presence and these parameters had significant differences among time treatments.
A new species of the genus Achaemenothrombium (Acari: Achaemenothrombiidae) from Iran.
Achaemenothrombium dariusi Saboori, Wohltmann & Hakimitabar sp. nov. (Acari, Prostigmata: Trombidioidea) is described and illustrated from larvae ectoparasitic on Euxoafallax (Eversmann)
