Bdellodes kazeruni Ostovan and Karnali is redescribed. Bdella muscorum and B. meridionalis are reported for the first time from Iran. Two species in two genera of the family Cunaxidae, namely Coleoscirus magdalenae (Den Heyer) and Pulaeus subterraneus (Berlese) are reported for the first time from Iran. A key to the genera found at Karaj and the Iranian species of these genera are given.
