Typhlodromus laurentii Ragusa & Swirski 1978: 213   (synonymy according to Chant & Yoshida­Shaul 1987).

This species is mainly known from the South of the Mediterranean basin, and it is not very common. It has been reported in Portugal and Spain by Dosse (1961) and in Moroccan crops by Tixier et al. (2003, 2016) and Kreiter specifically from Oulmès region (unpub. data). Its biology has been recently studied ( Ouassat and Allam 2020 and Allam et al. unpub. data)

with specimens collected on apple in Oulmès region of Morocco ( Ouassat 2017, Ouassat and Allam 2019). It seems an efficient predator of P. ulmi   . It was already observed in Morocco by McMurtry & Bounfour (1989) on Olea europea   L., Cupressus sp.   and Cynodon dactylon Richard. This   is the first record of that species in Madeira Island.

Specimens examined: a single specimen (1 ♀) collected during this study. Risco (1040

m aasl, 32°47 ′ 56 ″ N, 17°11 ′ 8 ″ W), 1 ♀ on Erica madeirensis   ( Ericaceae   ) and 1 ♀ on Persea indica Sprengel   ( Lauraceae   ), 23/V/2019.

Previous records: Azerbaijan, Cyprus, Egypt, France, Greece, Iran, Israel, Jordan, Syria, Turkey.
