status

 

Ameroseius macropilis De Leon, 1964 

Ameroseius macropilis  De Leon, 1964: 215.

Type depository.

„Author’s collection".

Type locality and habitat.

USA, Tennessee, Erwin, on dead strawberry plant.

Comparative material.

U.S.A.: 2 ♀♀ ( LACM: ENT 198896) - Fall-1947, Ohio, Bowling Green, Red clover, Ray Everly & P. E. Telford (additionally labelled Ameroseius corbicula  ).

Remarks.

Ameroseius macropilis  is very similar to Ameroseius corbiculus  (Sowerby, 1806), but they can be easily distinguished by the number of opisthogastric setae expressed on soft integument (six pairs in A. macropilis  ; five pairs in A. corbiculus  , having its JV4 absent). The reports of A. corbiculus  given by Oatman (1971), Freitag and Ryder (1973), and Goh and Lange (1989) seem to be a misidentification of A. macropilis  , and they should be revised.
