Genus Scarites Fabricius, 1775 

Subgenus Parallelomorphus Motschulsky, 1849 

Scarites (Parallelomorphus) subcylindricus Chaudoir, 1843 

Studied material: Geno Mts, near Bandar Abbas, 2015 and 5 km South east of Khoshangan, Fin C. (Prov. of Hormozgan), 7 km east of Bazangan (Prov. of Razavi Khorasan), Shiraz, Maharloo Lake (Prov. of Fars). Citations: Sabzawaran (Prov. of Kerman; Mandl, 1963); Without exact locality ( Balkenohl, 2003).

Scarites (Parallelomorphus) terricola persicus Chaudoir, 1842 

Studied material: Sirch and Mahan (Prov. of Kerman), Ahmady and Rodan, C (Prov. of Hormozgan). Citations: Razavi Khorasan (Hosseini et al., 2012); Without exact locality ( Balkenohl, 2003).

Comment: Several dozen specimens (not concretely cited here) of this largely distributed species have been recently studied from Provinces East Azarbaijan, Gilan, Fars, Golestan, Hormozgan, Kerman, Sistan va Baluchestan, Razavi Khorasan, Qazvin, North Khorasan, West Azarbaijan, etc. It is not possible to clearly assign some of these specimens to appropriate subspecies. Validity of ssp. persicus  must be checked but very probably it is only a form of the nominotypical subspecies, without taxonomic value.

Samin et al. (2011) cited S. terricola pacificus Bates, 1873  from Bandar-Torkman (Prov. of Golestan). This subspecies is known only from SE Asia and the occurrence in Iran is not expectable so that this citation very probably belongs to S. terricola terricola Bonelli, 1813  or S. terricola persicus Chaudoir, 1842  .

Scarites (Parallelomorphus) terricola terricola Bonelli, 1813
