Material examined. Total of 157 specimens were collected from different plants, including N. oleander  , O. euro- paea, C. equisetifolia  , Phoenix canariensis  , Pistacia lentiscus  , Yucca  sp., Hibiscus  sp. and Cycas  sp. The species was recorded at 11 study sites: Antigua (25.III.2017), Betancuria (10.II.2017, 25.III.2017), Caleta de Fuste (13.II.2017, 30.III.2017)  , Corralejo (30.IX.2017), Costa Calma (04– 05.12.2016, 08–09.II.2017, 11–12.II.2017, 13.III.2017, 21– 23.III.2017, 27.III.2017, 04.VIII.2017, 09.VIII.2017), Grandtarajal (03.VIII.2017), Jandia (30.IX.2017), Lajares (30. IX.2016, 10.02.2017), La Lajita (23.03.2017, 06.VIII.2017), La Pared (30.09.2016, 26.III.2017, 04–05.VIII.2017, 07.VIII.2017, 12.VIII.2017) and Pajara (12.VIII.2017).

Distribution. Widely distributed species of Australian origin, known from all Canarian Islands ( Eizaguirre, 2007).

Remarks. Kovář (2007) included this species in the genus Lindorus Casey. However  , Lindorus  was synonymized by Pope (1981) with Rhyzobius Stephens  , and that decision was retained by Tomaszewska (2010) in her world revision of the genus. Consequently the species should be classified as a member of Rhyzobius  .
