status

 

Mecidea pallida Stål, 1845 

Mecidea pallida Stål, 1845: 233  ; Mecidea pallida  var. virens Vidal, 1949: 118  .

Distribution in Iran. Fars ( Hoberlandt 1955; Safavi 1959; Modarres Awal 1997 b), Hormozgan, Kerman ( Safavi 1959; Modarres Awal 1997 b), Kuhgiloyeh & Boyerahmad ( Hoberlandt 1955; Farahbakhsh 1961; Modarres Awal 1997 b), Sistan & Baluchestan ( Hoberlandt 1955, Safavi 1959; Farahbakhsh 1961; Kiritshenko 1966; Modarres Awal 1997 b), Southern Iran (no locality cited) ( Oshanin 1906, 1912).

General distribution. According to Derjanschi & Péricart (2005) and Rider (2006) this species only lives in tropical Africa, Algeria, Libya, Egypt. Its presence in Iran seems highly doubtful; the published records most likely should be referred to M. lindbergi  or M. pallidissima  ; this requires further study.

Host plants. In rice field ( Farahbakhsh 1961; Modarres Awal 1997 b).
