Remarks.

The female of Ameroseius longitrichus  was originally illustrated by Hirschmann (in Westerboer and Bernhard 1963) as having only 28 pairs instead of 29 pairs of dorsal shield setae. My examination of the specimens from various parts of the North America, identified as A. longitrichus  by Malcolm M. Furniss, Evert E. Lindquist, or John C. Moser, and published in part by Moser and Roton (1971), Furniss et al. (1972) and Moser (1975), has revealed that these specimens represents at least two species different from A. longitrichus  , including Ameroseius peniophorae  De Leon, 1964, previously described from Tennessee. These two species seem to be very similar to A. longitrichus  , but can be distinguished by some characters of dorsal and leg chaetotaxy (in A. peniophorae  , all legs are notably thickened and shortend, and femur I and genu I bear a robust and smooth seta on medial ventral surface).
