status

 

Oplitis paradoxa ( Canestrini & Berlese, 1884)  

Uropoda paradoxa   – Canestrini & Berlese (1884): 175.

Oplitis paradoxa   – Karg (1989): 163.

Distribution and habitats in Iran – Fars (soil of citrus orchards), Yazd (soil of wheat fields) and Kerman (soil) ( Kazemi and Rajaei 2013) Provinces. This is a new record for Khuzestan province fauna.

Material examined One female, Shush, Beyt-e Jazayer, 32° 00' 56" N, 48° 17' 27" E, 60 m a.s.l., 26 May 2016 (cow manure); one female, Bavi, Mollasani, 31° 35' 31" N, 48° 53' 10" E, 27 m a.s.l., 12 April 2017 (sheep manure).

Note Characters of the Iranian specimens agreed with data presented in Karg (1989). The genus was also considered as a member of the family Uropodidae   (e.g. Hirschmann 1991) or Trachyuropodidae   (e.g. Kontschán 2013). However, we place it in Oplitidae   following Pereira et al. (2016).
