Typhlodromus (T.) moroccoensis   Denmark (reported once from Morocco on Prunus sp.   ) ( Denmark 1992) is the only species with T. (T.) setubali   within the sub­genus Typhlodromus (Typhlodromus)   bearing six setae on genu II. Nothing is known about the biology of this species. This is the first record of that species in Madeira Island.

World distribution: Morocco.

Specimens examined: a single specimen (1 ♀) collected during this study. Risco (1040 m aasl, 32°47 ′ 56 ″ N, 17°11 ′ 8 ″ W), 1 ♀ on Persea indica Sprengel   ( Lauraceae   ), 23/V/2019.

Remarks: the measurements of the adult females collected ( Table 5) agree with those provided by Denmark (1992) for specimens from Morocco as reported by Tixier et al. (2016). Typhlodromus (T.) setubali   and T. (T.) moroccoensis   are morphologically close and Tixier et al. (2016) indicated that further analyses would be required to determine T if. (T.) moroccoensis   is valid or synonym. But comparisons provided in tables 5 and 6, show some differences especially the number of teeth on the fixed digit and spermatheca shape.
