Pseudodendrothrips aegyptiacus (Priesner)  

Phlebothrips aegyptiacus Priesner, 1965: 284   .

This species was described from Egypt and is recorded from the Canary Islands and South Africa as well as Israel, UAE and Yemen. In Saudi Arabia, it has been found breeding on the leaves of Anisotes sp.   although it has also been collected from leaves of Coccinia grandis   . In common with the species P. kulshresthai   , P. alexei   , and P. maculosus   this species has 8-segmented antennae ( Mound & Tree 2007), although it differs from them in having the body unicolorous yellow and the hind tibiae with two spines at the apex ( Fig. 12 View FIGURES 8–13 ). Two females from Abu Dhabi have been studied and on one of these one antenna has segment VI entire but VII is subdivided, thus producing a 9-seg- mented condition of the antenna (see Zhang et al. 2019).

Material studied. SAUDI ARABIA, Al Baha, Baljurashi, Jarab-Baljurashi Rd. 4 females beaten from leaves of Coccinia grandis   [ Cucurbitaceae   ], 22.ix.2020; Al Makhwa, Shada Al aala, Qarwiya, 8 females and 5 larvae beaten from leaves of Anisotes sp.   [ Acanthaceae   ], 26.ix.2020, (Rasool, I), ( KSMA).
