Kampimodromus aberrans   is mainly reported from Europe. It is recorded from wild vegetation but also from crops especially apple orchards and vineyards (Tixier et al., 1998, 2000; Kreiter et al., 2000). It is known as an efficient predator of Eotetranychus carpini (Oudemans)   and several studies have also shown its ability to develop feeding on pollen. It is mainly reported from plants with hairy leaves (Kreiter et al., 2002). Kreiter et al. (2007) cited this species from the Moroccan fauna referring to the specimens reported here.

Specimens examined: 2002, Meknes University on Andryala integrifolia   ( Asteraceae   ) (7 females).

Previous records: Albania, Algeria, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Byelorussia, Bulgaria, Canada, Caucasus region, Croatia, Czech Republic, England, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iran, Israel, Italy, Moldova, Morroco (Kreiter et al., 2007), Montenegro, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Netherlands, Tunisia, Turkey, Ukraine. The specimens reported from USA certainly belong to Kampimodromus corylosus   (Tixier et al., 2008 a).
