Family Tabanidae comprises 4290 species of flies worldwide, including the commonly known horseflies and deerflies. They are important vectors of human and animal diseases. In Iran so far more than 80 species and subspecies of this family have been identified. In the current study, flies were collected using insect net, Malaise trap and Nzi trap from the Shiraz area and suburbs.
A total of seven species belonging to the family Tabanidae, Subfamily Tabaninae and Genus Tabanus were identified. The species T. spodopteroides is recorded for the first time from Iran. All species are new records for Fars province.
