Hypoaspis pentodoni Costa  

Hypoaspis pentodoni Costa, 1971: 71   .

Specimens examined. Two females, Karaj, Nazarabad, 35 ° 54 ' N, 50 ° 38 ' E, alt 1230 m, 12 July 2009, O. Joharchi coll., on adult Polyphylla olivieri   .

Notes. This species was described from Israel, on the beetle Pentodon bispinosus   . It is now recorded from Iran on a different species of host. Costa (1971) reported a macroseta on genu IV in this species, but his illustration and the type specimens show only setae of normal length (A.S. Baker, pers. comm.), and that is consistent with our specimens. This species may be recognised by the short setae in the central area of the dorsal shield and its relatively small sternal shield, which is wider than long.
