Abstract

A survey was carried out for identification of the agromyzid leaf miners in common host plants at Kermanshah province (Western part of Iran) during 2008-2010. The samples were collected from various cultivated and non-cultivated plants and reared until emergence of adult agromyzids. Six species belonging to four genera were collected and identified in association with 10 host plants. Among them, three species including Liriomyza sonchi Hendel, 1931; Phytomyza lappae Goureau, 1851 and Phytomyza plantaginis Robineau-Desvoidy, 1851 are newly recorded for the fauna of Iran. A brief description of the diagnostic characters for the newly recorded species is presented.
