General distribution. Ponto-Mediterranean from Balkanic Region to Azerbaijan, Iran and Turkmenistan, Near East ( Syria, Israel) (P. Moulet, unpublished data), Sinai and probably elsewhere in Egypt ( Derjanschi & Péricart 2005).

Host plants. On different forest trees ( Farahbakhsh 1961; Modarres Awal 1997 b), deciduous trees such as Prunus  sp. ( Rosaceae  ), Quercus  sp.( Fagaceae  ), also found on Cupressus  ( Cupressaceae  ) ( Linnavuori 2008), Fraxinus syriaca  ( Oleaceae  ), Tradescantia virginiana  ( Commelinaceae  ), Ulmus campestris  ( Ulmaceae  ) (Sakenin et al. 2008), Crataegus  sp.

Comments. An unknown species, Mustha  sp. was recorded by Sadaghian et al. (2004) and Nikdel et al. (2011) from East Azarbaijan; we suspect that it was M. spinosula  .
