Description of two new species and redescription of one species of agnarid terrestrial isopods (Oniscidea, Agnaridae) from western Iran.

Kashani GM - Zookeys (2014)

Bottom Line: The genus Mongoloniscus Verhoeff, 1930 is recorded for the first time from Iran, with description of a new species: M. persicus sp. n.Protracheoniscus ehsani sp. n. is described and P. darevskii Borutzky, 1975 is redescribed based on Iranian specimens.The diagnostic characters of these species are figured and their geographical distribution is presented on a map.

Figure 5: Protracheoniscus darevskii Borutzky, 1975, male. A pleopod endopodite 1 B–D pleopod exopodite 1 E pleopod 2 F pleopod exopodite 3 G pleopod exopodite 4 H pleopod exopodite 5. Scale = 0.1 mm.

Mentions: Pleon narrower than pereon (Fig. 4A). Telson triangular with slightly concave sides and acute distal part (Fig. 4C). Uropod exopodites long, almost 2.5 times as long as telson (Fig. 4C). Pleopod exopodites I–V with monospiracular covered lungs (Fig. 5B–H).
