Genera of Thysanoptera in Iran

Bhatti et al. (2009) listed 62 genera (including 47 Terebrantia and 15 Tubulifera) of Thysanoptera in Iran. Subsequently, Mirab-balou & Chen (2011 a,b; 2012 a,b), Ramezani et al. (2012), Minaei & Alichi (2012) and Mirab-balou et al. (2012) added five thripid genera ( Stenchaetothrips , Megalurothrips , Selenothrips , Florithrips , Arorathrips ) and two phlaeothripid genera, Aleurodothrips and Bagnalliella to this list. In this paper another genus, Ficothrips , is described based on specimens collected from leaves of Ficus carica in Fars province, in south of Iran. So the number of Thysanoptera genera recorded from Iran is now 70.
