Type locality and habitat.

Egypt, Kena Governorate, Koa, in debris under orange tree, Citrus x sinensis  (as Citrus sininses  ) ( Rutaceae  ).

Comparative material.

Germany/India: 2 ♀♀ ( ZMB: 40281) - 2. 5. 1969, Zwiebeln 301, Indien, „Meyenburg“, 2989 (labelled Ameroseius gracilis  ); 2 ♀♀ ( ZMH: A102/85) - Nov. 1983, Hamburg, eingeschleppt mit gesacktem Pfeffer, Jutesäcke, leg. Hüter (Degesch), det. G. Rack in 1983 (labelled Ameroseius cf. plumigerus  ).

Remarks.

El-Badry et al. (1979) and Zaher (1986) gave only a brief description of Kleemannia kosi  . So, my identification of this species was initially based on insufficiently detailed illustrations available in their papers, later also on detailed photos of specimens stated to be kosi  and originated from Egypt (kindly sent by R. Abo-Shnaf).

Together with other ameroseiid species such as Kleemannia parplumosa  and Sertitympanum nodosum  , it can represent a group of stored product mites unintentionally introduced to Europe by various human activities (see comparative material above).
