Notes.

Laelaspis calidus  was described from east Africa ( Berlese 1924), also has been recorded at Kilimanjaro near Marangu from moss and litter ( Aswegen and Loots 1970) and has not been reported since. It is easily recognised by the bidentate movable digit and the seven-toothed fixed digit, the serrated postanal seta and seta Z5 two to three times as long as J5. This species has been found from moss and litter, but has not been reported from the nests of ants. It is now recorded in Iran for the first time from the ant nests.
