Paranathrix acanthococci (Myartseva, 1977)


Paranathrix acanthococci (Myartseva, 1977) 

Material examined. Hormozgan province, Minab, 27°17'N 54°19'E, 6 ♀, 2 ♂, 3.x.2007, ex Ferrisia virgata (Ceckerell)  ( Hemiptera  : Pseudococcidae  ) on Althea  sp. ( Malvaceae  ).

General distribution. Turkmenistan.

Comments. Examination of the specimens preserved in NHM collection indicates that the collected materials from Hormozgan (southern Iran) are P. acanthococci  ; so the specimens of Paranathrix tachikawai  recorded by Fallahzadeh & Japoshvili (2010) should be checked and confirmed.
