ABSTRACT. A comprehensive identification key has been compiled for 35 genera belonging to three tribes of the Mirinae subfamily found in Iran. Illustration of male and female genitalia for most genera, digital images of habitus and other diagnostic characters were provided to aid unequivocal identification. Rauniella ishtar (Linnavuori, 1984), Cyphodema humbaba Linnavuori, 1984, and Stenotus binotatus (Fabricius, 1794) are briefly redescribed and reported as three new species for Iranian fauna.
