In addition, one new species of the subfamily Orthotylinae, Zanchius gurbandicus sp. nov., is described and one new record each is provided for the subfamilies Deraeocorinae and Orthotylinae. A key to the genus Sthenaropsis Poppius, 1912 is provided. Plagiognathus (Plagiognathus) bipunctatus albicans (Reuter, 1901) stat. nov., and Atomophora maculosa erato Linnavuori, 1971 stat. restit. are considered valid subspecies. The following 14 species are recorded from Iran for the first time: Anonychiella subannulata (Wagner, 1973), Argyrotelaenus simoni Reuter & Poppius, 1912, Camptotylidea flavida (Nonnaizab & Yang, 1994), Lepidargyrus seidenstueckeri (Wagner, 1956), Lepidargyrus syriacus (Wagner, 1956), Macrotylus cruciatus (R.
