Abstract

Field-based research conducted in 2016 in Iran resulted in the collection of ground beetles (Coleoptera: Carabidae). Three species—Brachinus (Brachinus) alexandri (F. Battoni, 1984), Sinechostictus (Sinechostictus) lederi (Reitter, 1888), and Amblystomus metallescens (Dejean, 1829)—are reported from Iran for the first time. In addition, Calomera sturmi (Ménétriés, 1832), Bembidion (Nepha) menetriesii (Kolenati, 1845), Bembidion (Peryphus) obscurellum turanicum (Csiki, 1928), and Lionychus (Lionychus) orientalis (K.Daniel, 1901) are reported from the Alburz Province for the first time. Microlestes plagiatus (Duftschmid, 1812) is reported from the Mazandarn Province for the first time and Myriochila (Myriochila) semicircumcincta (Mandl, 1959) is reported from Hormozgan Province for the first time.
