Abstract

Species of the genus Chirothrips Haliday live on various species of grasses (family Poaceae). In this research, Chirothrips hamatus Trybom is reported for the first time in Iran as the seventh species recorded in this country for the genus so far. Most specimens of C. hamatus were collected on Phragmites sp. in Khuzestan Province (Iran). As for Chirothrips atricorpus Girault that has been previously reported in Iran, the second antennal segment in C. hamatus is symmetrical. The morphological differences of these two species are discussed and illustrated herein.
