Eremiothrips varius (Bhatti)


Eremiothrips varius (Bhatti) 

This species was described from both sexes collected on Suaeda  sp. ( Amaranthaceae  ) at New Delhi, India ( Bhatti 1967), but was subsequently reported from Iran, in Golestan and Khuzestan provinces, ( Alavi 2000; Bagheri et al. 2002). Although the shape of process on abdominal male tergite IX in this species is distinct (bifurcated) ( Fig. 12View FIGURES 9 – 13. E) several variants related to structure of appendages and chaetotaxy of abdominal segment IX of this species have been reported ( Bhatti 1972).

Material studied. Iran, Fars province, Shiraz, Badjgah, 21 females, 2 males from Atriplex patula  , 19.viii. 2011 (KM 511).
