Ameroseius aegypticus El-Badry, Nasr & Hafez, 1979 

Ameroseius aegypticus  El-Badry, Nasr & Hafez, 1979: 2.

Ameroseius aegypticus  . - Zaher 1986: 401; Narita et al. 2015: 395.

Type depository.

Not stated.

Type locality and habitat.

Egypt, Giza Governorate, Dokki, Ministry of Agriculture, decayed debris under wild-sage, Lantana camara  ( Verbenaceae  ).

Remarks.

A species closely related with Ameroseius lidiae  Bregetova, 1977, if not identical. I have seen a series of photos displaying a specimen of this species from Egypt (kindly sent by R. Abo-Shnaf). Some differential characters for separating Ameroseius aegypticus  and A. lidiae  could be based on dorsal chaetotaxy (in A. aegypticus  , dorsal setae slightly longer and more slender when compared with A. lidiae  , the distance between left and right base in setal pairs j5, J2 and J4 relatively shorter; setae Z2 only slightly longer than Z1 and Z3).
