status

 

Picromerus conformis (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1841) 

Asopus conformis Herrich-Schaeffer, 1841: 72  ; Picromerus nigridens Fieber, 1861: 349  (non Fabricius, 1803).

Distribution in Iran. Guilan ( Hérard et al. 1979), Northern Iran (no locality cited) ( Mohaghegh 2006), Iran (no locality cited) ( Modarres Awal 1997 b; Mohaghegh 2008; Aukema et al. 2013).

General distribution. Southern Europe except France, Spain and Portugal extending to Azerbaijan (according to Péricart 2010); the mention from Algeria ( Rider 2006) seems erroneous to us and not repeated by Péricart (2010).

Comments. Predator of larvae of L. dispar  ( Hérard et al. 1979; Modarres Awal 1997 b). Members of the genus Picromerus  are generalist predators feeding especially on larval stages of leaf eating Lepidoptera  , Coleoptera  and Hymenoptera ( Larivière & Larochelle 1989)  .
