Abstract: 

Symbiotic ants with Nipaecoccus viridis New. were collected on citrus trees in Khuzestan, southern province of ban, from September 1996 to December 1997. Collected specimens were identified in Iran and confirmed by The North Carolina Museum, USA. Total of 16 species from 12 genera and 3 subfamilies were collected from which 9 species were the first record for Iran. Except the species Polyrhachis lactepennis Smith, all were new records for the region (**). The two species are probably new for the world (***). Keys to genera and species collected in this study have also been presented.
