scientific name

Tydeus helenipanoue
status

 

Tydeus helenipanoue   Ka´zmierski, 1998

Locality and habitat where specimens have been presently found: Kermanshah, Koozaran , soil, 21 Oct. 2011, 34°24’34"N, 46°51’52"E, Altitude: 1325 m, 1 TN GoogleMaps   .

Diagnosis — Dorsal idiosomal setae are equal in shape, narrowly lanceolate and serrate, but unequal in length (caudal ones are slightly longer). Setae f1 longer than half distance f1- h1. Setae ps1 situated dorsally. Ventral striation between mt longitudinally. Adults of this species has four pairs of genital setae.

This species is related to T. munsteri Meyer and Ryke (1959)   and T. quadrisetosus ( Schiess 1981)   but can be distinguished from the former by narrower and longer dorsal idiosomal setae and from the latter by having serrated setae ( Ka´zmierski 1998).

Remark — There is a very small ω1 on tarsus I that is much smaller than in the description. This difference is because collected mite was in tritonymph stage where as the description is based on females. This is first record of this mite from Iran.
