This species was first reported as Typhlodromus (Anthoseius) kazachstanicus Wainstein   in Algeria by Athias- Henriot (1960 b), but then identified as a new species by Wainstein & Arutunjan (1967). Nothing is known of its biology. This is the second report of this species in the world.

Specimens examined: 2003, Ras El Ma on Cydonia oblonga   ( Rosaceae   ) (1 female), Silene sedoides   ( Caryophyllaceae   ) (1 female), near Larache on Chamaerops humilis   ( Arecaceae   ) (1 female), Saïdia on Lygos raetrum   ( Fabaceae   ) (1 female).

Previous records: Algeria.
