<P class=MsoNormal>Dear specialists</P>
<P class=MsoNormal>Recently I have collected two specimens of genus <I>Pelecocera </I>from<I> </I>Kurdistan<I> </I>province<I> </I>in western part of Iran. I saw catalogue of Palearctic, Sack&#8217;s key and also other available literatures. In those keys two species namely <I>P.latifrons</I> Lw. and <I>P.tricincta</I> Mg. were separated based on color of abdomen but hadn&#8217;t been presented any picture of male genitalia for confirmation of identification. Also I don&#8217;t know if other species have been reported from Palearctic region since these publications or not. Please let me know are there any special key for species of this genus and figure of their genitalia or not. </P>
