    Introduction

    Dolichopodidae (Diptera, Brachycera) is a large, diverse and cosmopolitan family of flies commonly known as long-legged flies, including 7,600 species in 250 genera (Grichanov 2017). Until recently, only little information on long-legged flies from Iran is available, with most records coming from central and Northern provinces (e.g. Khaghaninia et al. 2014; Kazerani et al. 2015; Ahmadi et al. 2016). A comprehensive review of the work done on Iranian Dolichopodidae wasps by various researchers was by Grichanov (2016), based on all the available information and examination of some specimens. In total, this review included 114 species. Since that time several important works on Iranian long-legged flies have been published and the known number of species from the country has increased to 155.

    The present study continues a series of publications dealing with the family Dolichopodidae in southern Iran (Rezaei et al. 2019; Grichanov and Rezaei 2019). The aim of the current work is to improve our knowledge of the Iranian fauna of the fly family Dolichopodidae. We provide further information on the distribution of long-legged flies in the Fars Province, southern Iran.

    Material and methods

    The specimens were collected by Malaise traps in four different localities of the Fars province (South Iran). Sampling localities are briefly described below.

    Loc. A): IRAN, Fars, Dalin, 52 ° 07'54.7 "E, 30 ° 02'15.0" N.

    Dalin is a small village in Hamaijan rural district, Sepidan County. Dalin is located in the west of Fars province, having a cold and mountainous climate with green and breezy summers and snowy winters. Diverse rivers favour the cultivation of, for example, apple (Maluspumila Miller), plum tree (Prunusspp.) And walnut (Juglansregia L.) orchards.

    Loc. B): IRAN, Fars, Shiraz County, Jannat garden, 52 ° 28'9.147 "E, 29 ° 36'52.373" N.

    The climate has distinct seasons, and is overall classed as a hot semi-arid climate, though it is only a little short of a hot-summer Mediterranean climate. Shiraz contains a considerable number of gardens. Jannat garden has a large number of fruit trees and ornamental plants including walnut, pomegranate (Punica granatum L.), pine (Pinus ssp.) And cypress trees (Cupressus sempervirens L.).

    Loc. C): IRAN, Fars, Dasht-e Arzhan, 51 ° 59'3.439 "E, 29 ° 39'39.047" N.

    Dasht-e Arzhan is a village in Arzhan rural district, Shiraz County. This village lies in an ecologically important zone that is Arzhan and Parishan protected area. The area is included into the southern Zagros, characterized by rocky ground, predominately formed by Quercusspp., Together with Astragalusspp. and herbaceous plants.

    Loc. D): IRAN, Fars, Larestan, 54 ° 26'1.36 "E, 27 ° 31 '55 .4" N.

    Larestan is located in the south of Fars province and has a very hot and desert climate, with hot and dry plains, water shortages and many salt domes. The vegetation includes eucalyptus (Eucalyptusspp.), Acacia (Acaciaspp.), Jujube (Ziziphus spp.) And olive (Olea spp.). The pastures are mostly covered with milk vetch (Astragalus spp.).

    The general species distribution is given after Negrobov et al. (2013) and Grichanov (2017). Type localities are provided, and country lists (in zoogeographical regions) are arranged alphabetically. Photos of some species and habitat photos are provided. The specimens in ethanol have been studied with a ®Zeiss Discovery V-12 stereomicroscope and ®AxioCam MRc5 camera attachment. Voucher specimens are deposited in collections of the Zoological Museum of Moscow State University, Moscow, Russia (ZMUM), the Zoological Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, St. Petersburg (ZIN) and the Department of Entomology, Jahrom Branch, Islamic Azad University, Jahrom, Iran (JIAU).

    Results

    We have collected a total of 824 specimens of Dolichopodidae in Fars province, representing 14 species. In the following, the individual species are arranged alphabetically within each genus.

    Discussion

    During the present study, 824 specimens have been collected, including 340 males and 484 females. Fourteen species and 10 genera are listed. Based on the current data, a following analysis can be presented. Four species, Asyndetus albifrons (56.31%), Asyndetus fallahzadehi (17.96%), Chrysotus suavis (16.74%) and Medetera pallipes (4.61%) were the most abundant in the collected material (Table 1). The comparison of the number of specimens collected in the different months of the present study shows that the highest number of individuals was collected in August (243 specimens), followed by July and April with 185 and 148 specimens, respectively.

    The genera DiaphorusMeigen, 1824, Dolichopus Latreille, 1796, HydrophorusFallen, 1823, and Syntormon Loew, 1857 are recorded in the Fars province for the first time. These genera were previously recorded from the northern provinces of Iran and the records of them from southern Iran show their wider distribution in the Iranian plateau. Dolichopuslairdi Olejnicek, Mohsen & Ouda, 1995 is newly added to the Iranian insect fauna.

    As mainly Malaise traps were used for collecting in the current study, no more conclusions on ecological and biological traits can be made. Further studies on the distribution, systematics, behavior and ecology should clearly be supported.
