Abstract

 As a result of our study of the family Lauxaniidae in Gilan province (North Iran), we here report the following seven species new to Iran: Homoneura notata (Fallen, 1820), Meiosimyza platycephala (Loew, 1847), Minettia fasciata (Fallen, 1826), Minettia longipennis (Fabricius, 1794), Minettia tabidiventris (Rondani, 1877), Peplomyza litura (Meigen, 1826) and Tricholauxania praeusta (Fallen, 1820). The genus Peplomyza is recognized for the first time in this country. Therefore, 31 species in nine genera are now recognized for the Iranian lauxaniid fauna. In addition, we provide diagnosis and color photographs of adult external structures including male genitalia to aid correct identification.
