Notes

Joharchi et al. (2011) described M. karajensis   from nest of Camponotus   sp. ( Hymenoptera   : Formicidae   ) in Iran. We have re-examined the holotype of this species, and now provide some additional illustrations to support the original description (Figs. 54–62). The original description of this species shows two pairs of setae in the soft skin posterior to the dorsal shield, J5 and Z5 (Joharchi et al. 2011, Fig. 19 View Figures 16–23 ). The posterior margin of the shield is irregular and poorly defined in places, so the exact placement of these setae is difficult to determine. The holotype appears to have four pairs of setae in the soft skin posterior to the shield (Fig. 57). They also stated that the tibia of the palp has 12 setae. The palp tibia and tarsus in this species are fused, and the combined tibia/tarsus has 23–24 setae.
