Coleolaelaps asiaticus Karg, 1999: 431   .

Coleolaelaps asiaticus   .— Karg & Rössner, 1999: 225.

Specimens examined. Eleven females, Karaj, 35 ° 48 'N, 50 ° 59 ' E, alt. 1384 m, O. Joharchi coll., 11 June 2009, on Polyphylla olivieri   adults; three females, Shiraz, 10 May 2008, O. Joharchi coll., on Polyphylla olivieri   adults; two females, Yazd, 31 ° 33 ' N, 54 ° 11 ' E, alt 2300 m., O. Joharchi coll., on Polyphylla olivieri   adults.

Notes. Coleolaelaps asiaticus   was described from Kazakhstan, and is now recorded for only the second time. All the specimens have come from beetles in the genus Polyphylla ( Karg & Rössner, 1999)   . This species may be distinguished from most other species of Coleolaelaps   by the presence of two postero-lateral setae on genu IV, the relatively short dorsal shield setae in the J series, and the short peritreme, which reaches only to the posterior margin of coxa I.
