Tephritis nozarii sp. n. from East Azerbaijan Province (NorthWest of Iran) is described and illustrated. It is similar to T. hendeliana Hering, T. hyosciami Linnaeus and T. multiguttata Becker in its pale brownish grey wing pattern, differing by the number of hyaline spots in marginal part of r1 cell and some other details of pattern. Cell r1 in T. nozarii sp. n. contains 3 subequally large spots (resembling some Campiglossa species), a character rarely encountered in Tephritis.
