Acta Entomologica Musei Nationalis Pragae 54(1): 29-34, 2014
Abstract: Eremiothrips eshghii sp. nov. is described from Fars province, south of Iran,
from specimens collected on a species of Ephedra (Ephedraceae). This new species
seems to be related to E. efflatouni (Priesner, 1965) in having no long setae on
the posterior angles of the pronotum in both sexes, as well as in the presence
of biserially toothed processes on the tergum IX of males.
Key words: Thysanoptera, thrips, Eremiothrips eshghii, new species, Fars, Iran, Palaearctic Region
