Phyllocephalinae (Pentatomidae) there are represented in Iran four or possibly
five species. All mentioned species e. g. Chalcopis mirzayansi Hoberlandt and
Safavi, Schyzops aegyptiaca aegyptiaca (Lefebvre), Schyzops pakistanica Ghauri,
Phyllocephala albicornis Horvath and recently not proofed species Gellia
nigripennis (Dallas), range in their distribution into South and South-East
Iran. The mentioned species, with the exception of Oriental Gellia nigripennis
(Dallas), are of Saharo-Sindian distribution with the distributional centre in
