Ankothrips zayandicus sp. n. is described from Isfahan province, central Iran. It is unique among Ankothrips species, also unusual among Melanthripidae, in having no long setae on the head and pronotum. Problems are discussed in defining genera in Melanthripidae and Thripidae on the basis of pronotal setae.
