Abstract


Two new Diptacus species (Diptilomiopidae: Diptilomiopinae) including D. genusetosus sp. nov. and D. longiscatuber sp. nov. were collected from Alnus subcordata C. A. Meyer (Betulaceae) and Cornus sanguinea L. (Cornaceae), respectively, in Aliabad-e-Katul, Iran. They are described and illustrated. The new species appear to be vagrants on the leaf underside, they are white wax producers and no damage was observed on the infested plants. This is the first record of an eriophyoid mite on Cornaceae in Iran.
