Abstract:   (4410 Views)
The genus Exoprosopa Macqurt, 1840 (Diptera: Bombyliidae: Anthracinae) was studied in the north central Iran. Four species of the genus Exoprosopa were identified of which E. minos (Meigen,1804) and E. grandis (Pallas, 1818) were previously recorded from northern parts of Iran ( or north of Iran ) and two species namely E. efflatounbeyi Paramonov, 1928and E. altaica Paramonov, 1925 are newly recorded from Iran. A key to the species in north central Iran is provided. Morphological diagnostic characters and geographical distribution of the collected species are briefly discussed.
