Dendrothrips Uzel 1895: 159   . Type species Thrips ornata Jablonowski

Currently, Dendrothrips   includes 51 extant species, mostly from Africa and Asia as follows: Australia (four species), New Caledonia (one species), Oriental (21 species), Ethiopian (15 species) and Palaearctic (nine species) ( Marullo 2003; Mound et al. 2014; ThripsWiki 2014). In evolutionary view, this genus is remarkable, because despite the number of species in the Old World, there are none that are native to any part of the New World (see Mound 1999). These thrips are mainly associated with two plant families, Oleaceae   and Flacourtiaceae ( Marullo 2003)   .

Until now, four species have been known from Iran. D. saltatrix   is a widespread species in Europe, Siberia, India and Iran ( Mound et al. 1976; zur Strassen 2003). This species has been found on various plants in Iran (see Bhatti   et al. 2009). D. phyllireae   , a Mediterranean species which is closely associated with Oleaceae   (zur Strassen 2003), has been observed in Iran only on olive from the west and northeast ( Cheraghian 2000; Alavi 2002). D. degeeri   is widespread in Europe ( Mound et al. 1976; zur Strassen 2003) and has been reported on Rubus   sp. from northeastern Iran ( Alavi & Kamali 2003). D. karnyi   is distributed commonly in eastern Europe as well as Turkey on Vitex agnus-castus   (zur Strassen 2003), and this thrips was also observed on Vitex   pseudo-negundo from Southwestern Iran ( Bagheri & Alavi 2007).
