Neoheegeria gigantea (Priesner) 

Haplothrips giganteus Priesner, 1934: 279  .

Described from Egypt on Cistanche lutea  [ Scrophulariaceae  ], a series of both sexes has also been collected from the same plant in Morocco (see Minaei et al. 2007). Minaei and Behmanesh (2012) reported N. gigantea  from Iran on the basis of 37 females collected from dead leaves of oak, Quercus  sp. These authors considered that these specimens represented an aestivation phase of N. gigantea  in leaf litter. Recent collections show that gigantea  sometimes has been collected on Astragalus  sp. [ Fabaceae  ] around Fars province (southern Iran). At one site near Shiraz both Stachys  sp. and Astragalus  sp. were growing close to each other, and sampling from those plants revealed that dalmatica  was on the first, but gigantea  on the second.
