Abstract

Two new species of Pulaeini, Lupaeus damavandiani Paktinat-Saeij & Castro sp. nov., and Pulaeus aryani Paktinat-Saeij & Castro sp. nov., are described and illustrated from soil, humus and moss in the Mazandaran province, Iran. Also, the status of two genera are considered. Eight new combinations are proposed, namely L. akbari (Bashir & Afzal, 2009) comb. nov., L. anjumi (Bashir & Afzal, 2007) comb. nov., L. ferventis (Taj & Chaudhri, 1990) comb. nov., L. haurio (Taj & Chaudhri, 1991) comb. nov., L. payatopalpus (Corpuz-Raros, 1996) comb. nov., L. stultus (Taj & Chaudhri, 1991) comb. nov., L. walii (Bashir & Afzal, 2009) comb. nov. and Neocunaxoides neopectinatus (Shiba, 1978) comb. nov. P. razanensis Den Heyer, 2013 syn. nov. considered a junior synonym of P. krama (Chaudhri, 1977). Lupaeus clarae (Den Heyer, 1981b) is reported for the first time from Iran.
