Abstract:   (1813 Views)
The ladybird Hyperaspis pseudopustulata Mulsant, 1853 was recently reported as the 13th species of the genus Hyperaspis of Iran. Because of the lack of sufficient details in the original description, here we provide more details of morphological features by the help of electron microscope and quantitative morphometric measurements of Iranian H. pseudopustulata. The differential characters of the species in comparison with other close species are presented.
