Distribution in Iran. East Azerbaijan ( KERZHNER 1987), West Azerbaijan ( KERZHNER 1987).

Comment. Transitional populations with intermediate appearance between both subspecies but also showing some resemblance to N. (N.) p. transcaspicus Remane, 1962 (see discussion and figures in KERZHNER (1987)).

Nabis (Nabis) pseudoferus orientarius Remane, 1962  

Distribution in Iran. East Azerbaijan (Tabriz (paratype): REMANE (1962); KERZHNER (1987)), Esfahan ( KERZHNER 1987), Fars ( KIRITSHENKO 1966; KERZHNER 1981, 1987), Guilan (LINNAVUO- RI & HOSSEINI 2000), Kerman ( KIRITSHENKO 1966, KERZHNER 1987), Tehran ( REMANE 1962; KERZHNER 1981, 1987), Zanjan ( ASKARI et al. 2009). Specimens of N. pseudoferus   from East Azerbaijan by GHARAAT et al. (2009), HASSANZADEH et al. (2009a,b), SADEGHI et al. (2009) and ASKARI et al. (2009) probably belong to this subspecies.

General distribution. East Turkey, Cyprus, Lebanon, Iraq and Iran ( KERZHNER 1996).

Comment. Transitional populations, intermediate between both subspecies (see discussion and figures in KERZHNER (1987)).

Nabis (Nabis) pseudoferus transcaspicus Remane, 1962  

Distribution in Iran. Ardabil ( MODARRES AWAL 1987, LINNAVUORI & HOSSEINI 2000), East Azerbaijan ( MODARRES AWAL 1997), Guilan ( LINNAVUORI & HOSSEINI 2000), Golestan ( KERZHNER 1981, 1987), Hamedan (ABD- RABOU & GHAHARI 2006), Khorasan ( KERZHNER 1987, LINNAVUORI & MODARRES AWAL 1998, HEISS 2002, MODARRES AWAL 2008, HAVASKARY et al. 2010, as N. pseudoferus   ), Mazandaran ( KERZHNER 1987, HEISS 2002), Semnan (Schachrud: REMANE 1962 (paratypes); KERZHNER 1981, 1987), Tehran ( LINNAVUORI & HOSSEINI 2000).

General distribution. Turkmenistan and Iran ( KERZHNER 1996).

Comment. In hilly meadows and on undergrowth at margins of mountain forest ( LINNAVUORI & MODARRES AWAL 1998, LINNAVUORI & HOSSEINI 2000). Nabis pseudoferus transcaspicus   is a powerful predator of Eurygaster integriceps   in many regions of Iran, where this key pest is active in wheat fields.
