Type locality and habitat.

Of Ameroseius sculptilis  - Italy, Vallombrosa, in moss; of Ameroseius pulcher  - Germany, Erlangen, in rotting grass.

Comparative material.

Germany: 3 ♀♀ ( ZMB: 41124-41126) - Jan. 1986, Einsendung, LPG(P), Frühgemüse-zentrum Dresden, Gutkenpflanz. (Strohballen Kult.), 2990-2991, 2993 (labelled Ameroseius pulcher  ). Italy: 1 ex. ( ISZA: 169/3, holotype) - Vallombrosa, musco; 1 ♀ ( ISZA: 190/19) - Firenze, Giardino R. Stazione.

Published material from Slovakia.

Borská Nížina Lowland: Láb Village ( Ambros 1989). Hronská Pahorkatina Wold: Malá Mužla Village ( Várfalvyová et al. 2010).

New material from Slovakia.

Podunajská Rovina Flatland: 1 ♀ - 24. 7. 1990, Veľké Blahovo Village, fish-ponds, shore reed stand ( Phragmition  ), nest of Circus aeruginosus  ( Aves  ), altitude 120 m, leg. J. Krištofík and A. Darolová.

Remarks.

There are two slides of this species in the Berlese Collection in Florence, only one of them (169/3) is labelled „tipico”. Unfortunately, the holotype specimen is wholly unsuitable for study, and practically the same can be stated for the female mounted onto the second slide (190/19), reported from Florence. Bregetova (1977) considered Ameroseius sculptilis  to be identical to Ameroseius pulcher  Westerboer, 1963, and her interpretation is accepted in this paper. I examined one quite well preserved female on a slide in the Hirschmann/Willmann Collection in Munich labelled " Ameroseius pulcher  n. sp.". Unfortunately, this available specimen (slide) bears no type designation and specific collection data, but without doubt it belongs to the original series of Westerboer (see remarks under Ameroseiella macrochelae  ).
