In this study, between 2005-2007 fifteen aquatic coleopteran species belonging to four families (Dytiscidae, Gyrinidae, Helophoridae and Hydrophilidae) collected from the north of Tehran province (Iran) were established faunistically. Two diving beetle species: Agabus dilatatus (Brulle) and Hydroporus angustatus Sturm, were recorded in Iran for the first time. The Turkish and Iranian populations of the rare species Coleostoma transcaspicum Reitter, 1906 are morphologically compared.

TLDR
In this study, 33 diving beetle species belonging to 18 genera, collected in the Markazi province in the central part of Iran between 20012005, have been established faunistically and seven species and two genera were recorded from Iran for the first time.
Aquatic Insect from Iran for Possible Use of Biological Control of Main Vector-Borne Disease of Malaria and Water Indicator of Contamination
TLDR
The wide variety of aquatic insects throughout the country showed showed that looking at aquatic insects’ life in water could be one of the most cost-effective and the easiest method to assess the water contaminations by different pollutants and will provide a guideline for scientific communities and environmental agencies for decision making.
