Abstract: 

The family Erythraeidae is a relatively high diverse group, which consist of seven subfamilies (Abrolophinae Witte, 1995, Balaustiinae Grandjean, 1947, Callidosomatinae Southcott, 1957, Erythraeinae Robineau-Desvoidy, 1828, Leptinae Billberg, 1820, Myrmicotrombiinae Southcott, 1957 and Phanolophinae Southcott, 1946) (M?kol& Wohltmann 2012).
Curteria is one of 26 genera included in Erythraeinae. Four larval species ofCurteria have been reported from the world until now, namely C. episcopalis (C. L. Koch, 1837) from Finland, Germany, Poland, The Netherlands, C. southcotti Gabrys, 1992 from Germany, Hungary, Poland, C. ernesti Haitlinger, 2004 from Spain (Canary Islands) andC. duzgunesae (Saboori, cobanoglu & Bayram, 2007) from Turkey (Gabrys 1992; Haitlinger 2004; Wohltmannet al.2007; Saboori et al.2007; M?kol & Wohltmann 2012). Wohltmannet al. (2007) described the larval instars of Curteria episcopalisand C. southcotti for the first time based on specimens reared in the laboratory. Sabooriet al. (2009) considered the genus Zhangiella Saboori et al., 2007 as a junior synonym ofCurteria Southcott, 1961 and discussed about the taxonomic state of the genusZhangiella and differences between the species C.
duzgunesaewith the other species of Curteria. Until now, this genus have not been reported from Iran. In this paper, C. episcopalis is reported as new to the Iranian mite fauna.
