1)   Synaphris orientalis Marusik & Lehtinen, 2003^

Records: Razavi Khorasan (?).

Distribution: Turkmenistan, Iran (?).


S. o. Marusik & Lehtinen, 2003: 150, f. 1-24 (♂).

Comment: This species (currently known only from the male holotype) was described from Dushak Mountain, an area very close to the border of Iran and Turkmenistan. Although there are no records of it from Iran, we assume that it should occur in northeastern part of the country.
