Abstract. New faunistic records for 19 species of Philodromidae, Salticidae and Thomisidae for the spider fauna of Iran are presented. Five jumping spiders (Heliophanus curvidens, Langona tartarica, Menemerus marginatus, Plexippus paykulli, and Pseudicius arabicus) and two philodromid species (Philodromus fallax and P. hierosolymitanus) are new records for the spider fauna of Iran. P. hierosolymitanus is illustrated and redescribed on the basis of the Iranian specimens.
