To identify potential predators of citrus trees pests we monitored phytoseiids in the canopy and on the ground of citrus orchards for two consecutive years in Guilan Province, Iran. The most abundant species, and therefore of greatest potential as a biocontrol agent, were Amblyseius herbicolus (Chant) (55.6%) and Transeius wainsteini (Gomelauri) (30.6%). Graminaseius graminis (Chant) is reported for the first time from Iran. A checklist and key are given for the 24 phytoseiid species found in citrus orchards in Iran.
