Abstract

In this paper, which is the first contribution in the series devoted to the camel spiders of Iran, seven species from Kohgilouyeh and Boyer Ahmad Province are reported. The genus Gluviopsilla and two species; Gluviopsilla discolor (Kraepelin, 1899) (♀) and Paragaleodes nesterovi Birula, 1916 (♂♀) are new to the fauna of Iran, and five species Galeodes cf. krausi Harvey, 2002 (♂♀), Galeodes trichotichnus Roewer, 1934 (♂), Gylippus (Paragylippus) spinimanus Birula, 1905 (♀), Karschia (Karschia) persica Kraepelin, 1899 (♂) and Rhagodes caucasicus Birula, 1905 (♂♀) are new records for the province. Also, the females of P. nesterovi and G. cf. krausi are firstly recorded.
