Abstract

A list of grass-dependent Thysanoptera genera in Iran is provided, including Arorathrips with one species, A. mexicanus, a Chirothrips-related thripid genus as a new record for Iranian fauna. The specimens of this species were collected from mixed grasses in the city of Minab located in Hormozgan Province, south of Iran. The importance of grasses as host plants for members of the family Thripidae is briefly discussed.
