Abstract

The subfamily Coleoscirinae comprises of five genera: Coleoscirus Berlese, Neobonzia Smiley, Neoscirula Den Heyer, Pseudobonzia Smiley and Scutascirus Den Heyer which are distinguished by the number of plates on the idiosoma, presence of hysterosomal shield, sternal shield fused or separated, shape of solenidia on tarsus I and presence of subcuticular reticulation on coxae, propodosomal and genital plates (Den Heyer & Castro 2008; Skvarla et al. 2014). Neobonzia is very similar to Pseudobonzia, but it can be differentiated from it by the absence of the subcuticular reticulation pattern on coxae, propodosomal and genital plates. Coleoscirinae contains about 100 species and Neobonzia includes 25 species worldwide (Den Heyer & Hernandes 2015; Skvarla et al. 2014; Bashir et al. 2014). Little taxonomic researches has been done on this subfamily in Iran. The following species were recorded or described: Coleoscirus breslauensis Den Heyer, 1980, C. buartsus Den Heyer, 1980, C. simplex (Ewing, 1917), C. tuberculatus Den Heyer, 1978, Neobonzia saaymani (Den Heyer, 1977), Neoscirula sepasgosarianiDen Heyer et al., 2011 and Scutascirus exasperates (Shiba, 1978) (Kamali et al. 2001; Ueckermann et al. 2007; Den Heyer et al. 2011). In this paper, we describe Neobonzia panahiae􀀀sp. nov. as the second species of the Coleoscirinae described from Iran.
