Two species of myrmecophilous crickets, Myrmecophilus acervorum and Myrmecophilus ochraceus, are here established as present in the Iberian Peninsula. The generic host range for M. acervorum is limited to one genus, Lasius. The host range of M. ochraceus is wider, Camponotus, Messor, Monomorium, and Tetramorium. The identity of specimens from the Balearic Islands remains controversial.
