Hover flies (Diptera: Syrphidae) from rice fields and around grasslands of Northern Iran

Abstract : The syrphids' fauna of Iran is very diverse and was studied rather well in recent years. In the present paper, 24 species (of 19 genera and 2 subfamilies) were collected from the rice fields and around grasslands of Northern Iran. Of these, Chrysotoxum festivum (Linnaeus), Helophilus hybridus Loew and Melangyna umbellatorum (Fabricius) are newly recorded from Iran.
