This species has a Western Palearctic distribution. It has been observed on many uncultivated plants and on some crops, such as olive, citrus, pear, apple, peach, plum orchards and vineyards (Vacante & Nucifera, 1987; Ragusa & Ciulla, 1991; Papaioannou-Souliotis et al., 1994; Tixier et al., 2000; Papadoulis et al., 2009). Some studies have been carried out to determine how pollen can ensure its development (Ragusa & Tsolakis, 1998; Papadopoulos & Papadoulis, 2008). A low impact on the regulation of scales in citrus orchards has been observed (Siscaro et al., 1999).

This species was already known from Morocco, reported under the name Typhlodromus (Anthoseius) cryptus   (assumed to be synonym of T. (A.) foenilis   ) by Tixier et al. 2003) on various plants. It was abundant in the present survey (323 specimens collected) on various plants and regions.
