Diagnostic characters. Body length: ♂♂ 5.0–6.2 mm; ♀♀ 4.4–5.4 mm.

Colouration. Labrum yellow, sometimes with small brownish spot in middle. Elytra with small humeral spots, large discal spot with anterior margin oblique and not reaching apex of scutellum, lateral margin straight and parallel with elytral margin, posterior margin slightly rounded. Size of discal spot variable, in some specimens distinctly smaller ( Figs 38–40 View Figure ).

Head ( Fig. 17 View Figure ) with large frontal impression covered with large punctures. Anterior clypeal processes narrow, slightly convergent, outer margins oblique and concave, apical tips rounded, clypeal margin between processes straight. Mandibles moderately wide and rounded, with sharp dorsal keel. Only inner slopes of mandibles visible in dorsal view.

Aedeagus ( Fig. 5 View Figure ) with apical part triangular with straight margins and obtuse tip. Dorsal median impression with thin median keel, lateral sides convergent. Apex of aedeagus without inward triangular crooked folds. Operculum trapezoidal with slightly rounded anterior margin. Non-everted anterior sclerite visible as triangular base and long thin median process. Ventral side with two drop-shaped elongate impressions subapically.

Everted aedeagus ( Fig. 24 View Figure ). Ejaculatory guide formed by two ear-like plates. Lateral sclerites transverse, narrow. Anterior sclerite large, forming two concave plates connected in basal suture.

Spermatheca ( Fig. 11 View Figure ). Vasculum widely round, apex subtriangular, basal part slightly wider. Bulbus small, subtubular. Ductus spermathecae twice as long as vasculum, straight, without any coils.

Differential diagnosis. In the shape of male clypeal processes, L. shirazica  is very similar to L. luristanica  and L. regalini  sp. nov., however the inner sides of processes in L. shirazica  are convergent while in other species parallel (cf. Figs 16–18 View Figure ). Males of these species differ also in the structure of internal sclerites of aedeagus ( Figs. 22–25 View Figure ). The females of L. shirazica  have shorter straight ductus spermathecae without any coils, while the ductus spermathecae in females of L. luristanica  and L. regalini  sp. nov. is longer and always coiled (cf. Figs. 10–12 View Figure ).

Labidostomis kantneri  has the same shape of ejaculatory guide as L. shirazica  ( Figs 20 View Figure , 24 View Figure ). Both species differ in the shape of male clypeal processes which are extremely enlarged in L. kantneri  (see Figs 14, 17 View Figure ). The females of L. kantneri  have slightly longer ductus spermathecae with ca 20 small simple coils ( Fig. 8 View Figure ).

Distribution. Iran: Fars, Kohgiluyeh and Boyer-Ahmad (present study), Isfahan ( Lopatin 1979, present study), Hormozgan, Kerman ( Rapilly 1984b).

Comments. The specimens of L. shirazica  from Luristan province ( Warchałowski 1985) refer to L. luristanica  based on the drawing of spermatheca.
