Cephalothrips Uzel 

The eight species listed under this genus are mainly from the Holarctic ( ThripsWiki 2019), with six of them de- scribed from the following countries: China, Cuba, Kyrgyzstan, Morocco, North America, South Africa. The type species, C. monilicornis (Reuter)  ( Fig. 6View FIGURES 1–12) is known widely across Europe and is reported from North America ( Mound et al, 2018). In Iran, two females were taken from flowering Carum carvi  ( Apiaceae  ) ( Alavi & Kamali 2003), and the species was also recorded from barley in Gorgan ( Alavi et al. 2007). C. coxalis Bagnall  ( Fig. 7View FIGURES 1–12) was described from southern France, but it is also recorded from Iran and Morocco ( Alavi & Kamali 2003; Minaei & Mound 2014). During the present study a few wingless specimens of C. coxalis  were collected from leaf litter in Fars province.
