Relation to host

Vagrant.

Etymology

The specific designation medicager is from the generic name of host plant, Medicago.

Differential diagnosis

This species is similar to Aculus alfalfae (Roivainen, 1950), (from Medicago sativa), but can be differentiated from the latter by prodorsal shield with submedian lines and granules (prodorsal shield smooth in Aculus alfalfae), dorsal annuli with granules at lateral (dorsal annuli smooth in Aculus alfalfae), empodium 4-rayed (empodium 6-rayed in Aculus alfalfae).

Remarks

Alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.) is native to Asia Minor. The wild types in the Caucasus and in the mountainous regions of Afghanistan, Iran and adjacent regions. Now, alfalfa is widely cultivated throughout the world as fodder plant for cattle. The new species were described from the local/native plant from Iran.
Genus Tetra Keifer, 1944
