In the present study, a species list of identified terrestrial isopods in the fauna of Iran is provided based on the literature records. The list contains 45 species belonging to 25 genera and 11 families, of which two genera and 21 species are endemic to the country. Distributional data is provided for each species. Embracing 19 species, the family Agnaridae Schmidt, 2003 contain the highest number of species in Iran. In the near future several undescribed species will presumably be added to the list.
