Idiothrips Faure

This genus comprises only two species which are reported from Africa and Asia ( ThripsWiki 2019). Faure (1933) described I. bellus from South Africa, and this species was subsequently reported from India (Ananthakrishnan 1964) and then from Kerman province, southern Iran ( Kheyrandish Koshkoei 2000). Minaei (2013) recorded I. bellus ( Fig. 2 View FIGURES 1–12 ) in Fars province, and one female has been collected from leaf litter of Quercus sp. The only other species in the genus, I. maghrebinus remains known from a single female taken in flowers of Phillyrea angustifolia at Asni, Morocco (zur Strassen 1968).
