Material examined.

Sistan va Balouchistan, [17] 1 ♀, Chabahar, 9 Feb. 2009, leg. E. Entezari (PCGMK 2111).

Remarks.

This is the first record of the genus Somalodillo  reported from Iran. According to Taiti & Ferrara (1982; 2004), pereonite 1 with a schisma and sulcus arcuatus (Figure 6 A–C), the telson with a rectangular distal part, uropod with minute exopodite inserted dorsally close to distal margin (Figure 6D), and pleopod exopodite 2 with monospiracular lungs clearly identify the specimen as a member of the genus Somalodillo  . With no available male specimens, it was not possible to identify this female to specific level.
