The fauna of Iranian broad-headed bugs (Coreoidea: Alydidae) is studied in this paper. A total of twenty-one species of eleven genera (Alydus Fabricius, 1803, Camptopus Amyot & Serville, 1843, Euthetus Dallas, 1852, Heegeria Reuter, 1881, Megalotomus Fieber, 1860, Mirperus Stål, 1860, Nariscus Stål, 1865, Nemausus Stål, 1866, Riptortus Stål, 1859, Tenosius Stål, 1860, Leptocorisa Latreille, 1829) belonging to two subfamilies (Alydinae, Leptocorisinae) are listed for Iranian fauna. Out of them, three species, Megalotomus junceus (Scopoli, 1763), M. ornaticeps (Stål, 1858) and Leptocorisa oratoria (Fabricius, 1794), are new records for Iran.

A study of Iranian Coreoidea, Alydidae excluded, has brought new geographical data on these bugs. Ninety-five species in 34 genera of three families, including, Coreidae (53 species), Rhopalidae (33 species), and Stenocephalidae (9 species), are listed as the fauna of Iran. The following species of Coreidae are new for the Iranian fauna: Fracastorius cornutus Distant 1902, Homoeocerus albiguttulus Stål 1873, and Prismatocerus borealis (Distant 1918).

The poorly known assassin bug Reduvius (Pseudoreduvius) dicki Carayon, 1987 (Heteroptera: Reduviidae: Reduviinae), known so far only from Libya, is recorded here for the first time from Tunisia. In addition, the Tunisian record of Reduvius testaceus (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1845) was found to actually represent misidentification of R. dicki and R. testaceus is excluded from the list of the Tunisian fauna. The reduviid fauna of Tunisia currently comprises 56 species. © New York Entomological Society.
