Genus Cosmolaelaps Berlese 

Laelaps (Cosmolaelaps) Berlese, 1903a: 13  .

Type species Laelaps claviger Berlese, 1883  ; by original designation.

Diagnosis. The diagnosis of Cosmolaelaps  used here is based on that of Moreira et al. (2014).

Remarks. Five species of Cosmolaelaps  have been reported from Egypt to date ( Nasr & Momen, 2016). Although Kazemi (2015) transferred the species Laelaspis badrii Nasr & Nawar, 1989  to the genus Cosmolaelaps, Nasr & Momen (2016)  did not consider this change and retained the species under Laelaspis  . We here follow Nasr & Momen (2016) since the species includes the diagnostic character states of Laelaspis  (see Joharchi et al., 2011).
