To date 244 species of spiders belonged to 33 families have been recorded from Iran. Sixty two species, 4 genera and 8 families are reported for the first time from Iran in 2002-2006. Spiders were collected from branches, leaves, flowers and trunks of trees and bushes, on the ground, under the stones and grasses by Steiner and Baggiolini method, bottle, aspirator, pitfall trap, pans and insect net. Geolycosa altera Roewer, 955 was found to be junior synonym of Honga radiata (Latreille, 817). Four species of Lycosid spiders were transferred to Trochosa: T. austrocaspia (Roewer, 955), T. flavichelis (Roewer, 955), T. nava (Roewer, 955), T. persia (Roewer, 955).

The first spider collections in persia (Iran) were made by Keyserling and Bienert in 1859. The first published spider record from Iran was by Thorell 1983, who described a new species of Artema. In the first half of 20th century three papers dealt partly with spiders from Iran. Namely black-widows and Argiope have been published: Pocok (1903), Werner (1936) and Pavlosky (1942). In the beginning of the 20th century Russian expenditions to Iran were undertaken by Filipovich in 1904 and by Kirichenko in 1914. Like Keyserling’s material, their collections were stored in ZISP (Zoological Institute, St. Petersburg). While these spiders were partially identified by the late Kharitonov, this data remained unpublished. In the 1960s and 1970s, several expendations to Iran were organized by Austrain, Italian, American, Swiss and German and in 2000s Russian zoologists. Partial results of these expenditions were published in several faunistic and toxonomic papers: Roewer (1955,1959), Brignoli (1972, 1978, 1979, 1980, 1981, 1982), Senglet (1974), Wesolowska (1986), Proszynski (1992), Ovtsharenko et al. (1994), Saaristo and Tanasevitch (1995), Wunderlich (1995), Logunov (1999, 2001a,b), Logunov and Marusik (1999, 2000). Also, Twelve published abstracts and papers by Iranian researchers (Mirshamsi and Darvish, 1997; Goodarzi and Akbari, 1998; Goodarzi et al., 1998; Mozaffarian et al., 1998; Ghavami et al., 2004a, b; Ghavami, 2005, 2006a) and four project research had done by the author. Information on the occurrence and distribution of spiders within Iran is summarized in checklist given blow. New recorded species, genera and families are marked by astrisks(*).

Study of Spiders is young in Iran. Therefore, the most species of spiders haven’t been identified. Two hundred and forty four species of spiders have recorded since 1859 to now. The most of species were reported belonged to Salticidae, Lycosidae, Araneidae and Thomisidae families (70, 30, 21 and 20 species, respectively) and the fewest species belonged to Atypidae, Cybaeidae, Metidae, Nemestidae, Palpimanidae. Pisauridae and Titanoecidae families (Table 1). Spiders were collected from gardens, fields, forests, plains and houses. Some species were collected on different crops (apple, cereal, citrus, cotton, olive, pomegranate and rice) (Table 2).

Table 1: Number of species, new species and new genera of spiders were recorded of Iran
*Families marked by asterisks are reported for the first time from Iran

Table 2: Spider species were collected on different crops
(+) Indicating the spider species were collected on different crops, (-) Indicating the spider species not found

They had high population in gardens and fields and they had important role in pest control. The number of species were similar to spider fauna in Azerbayjan, Turkmenistan, Armenia, Kazakhstan, Mediterranean and the Near East But, spiders identification in these area and Iran is necessary to more study.
