Distribution in Iran. East Azerbaijan ( KERZHNER 1987), Esfahan ( KERZHNER 1987), Fars ( KERZHNER 1987), Golestan ( KERZHNER 1987), Guilan ( KERZHNER 1987, LINNAVUORI & HOS- SEINI 2000), Kerman ( KERZHNER 1987), Kohgiluyeh va Buyer Ahmad ( KERZHNER 1987), Khorasan ( KERZHNER 1987, LINNAVUORI & MODARRES AWAL 1998), Markazi ( KERZHNER 1987), Mazandaran ( KERZHNER 1987), Qazvin ( KERZHNER 1987), Semnan ( KERZHNER 1987), Tehran (Keredj (= Karaj): LINDBERG (1938), misidentified as N. ferus   (see KERZHNER 1988); Varamin: HOBERLANDT (1959), misidentified as N. sareptanus   (see KERZHNER 1987); KERZHNER (1987)), West Azerbaijan ( KERZHNER 1987). The record from Lahidschan (= Lahijan) in Guilan is based on a single female, whose identity was considered as uncertain already in the original paper ( WAGNER 1961). The record from the Passargadae by MIYAMOTO (1963, as N. pseudoferus   ) is doubtful (see KERZHNER 1987).

General distribution. European, extending to north-west Africa and Central Asia. Nabis   p. mimoferus Hsiao, 1964 is distributed from Kazakhstan and Afghanistan to Russian Far East and north India ( KERZHNER 1996).

Comments. Iranian specimens differ from European N. p. punctatus   , with the differences increasing towards south and east; however, the male genitalia are identical to N. p. punctatus   (see KERZHNER (1987) for discussion and figures). They were collected on herbaceous plants in fields and gardens by LINNAVUORI & MODARRES AWAL (1998) and in hilly meadows ( LINNAVUORI & HOSSEINI 2000).
