Typhlodromus (Anthoseius) ilicis Athias-Henriot, 1960   b

Typhlodromus ilicis Athias-Henriot, 1960 b: 95   .

Amblydromella ilicis   .—Moraes et al. 1986: 164.

Typhlodromus (Anthoseius) ilicis   . — Moraes et al., 2004: 330.

This species is mainly reported from the Mediterranean basin on oaks. It was already known from Morocco, where it was found by McMurtry & Bonfour (1989) on Quercus   sp. and by Tixier et al. (2003) on Quercus ilex   . Among the 21 specimens collected in the present survey 15 were found on Quercus ilex   and Q. coccifera   . This suggests a quite narrow relationship between this species and plants of the genus Quercus   . Nothing is known of its biology.

Specimens examined: 2002, Aïoun Asserdoun Spring on Quercus ilex   ( Fagaceae   ) (3 females), Azrou, Gouraud Cedar on Quercus ilex   ( Fagaceae   ) (3 females), Road of Beni Mellal, 70 Kms of Kenifra on Centaurea   sp. ( Asteraceae   ) (1 female); 2003, Babbou Idir on Quercus ilex   ( Fagaceae   ) (1 female), Mazari Cape on Quercus coccifera   ( Fagaceae   ) (2 females), Spartel Cape on Geranium molle   ( Geraniaceae   ) (1 female), Gorges of Zegzel on Quercus ilex   ( Fagaceae   ) (6 females).
