Remarks. In his contribution to the species of the genus Porcellio  in western Asia, Schmalfuss (1992) reported P. evansi  from southern and western Iran. New records revealed that this species is broadly distributed in Iran ( Fig. 1 View Figure ). The absence of this species in northern and eastern Iran seems to be due to the lack of proper habitats in these areas.

Budde-Lund (1885) described Porcellio rubidus  from Shiraz, Iran but that account remained the sole report for the species up to now. Schmalfuss (1992) identified the specimens from the same locality as P. evansi  . All specimens collected from Shiraz and the adjacent districts in the present work were also identified as P. evansi  demonstrating P. rubidus  and P. evansi  most probably belong to the same species.

While the name evansi Omer-Cooper, 1923  has been widely used by the different authors (see bibliographies under P. evansi in Schmalfuss 2003  ), the name rubidus Budde-Lund, 1885  has never been used again after the original description. In accordance with the article 23. 9 of the International Code of Zoological Nomenclature, Porcellio rubidus  is a senior synonym of P. evansi  and should be deemed as nomen oblitum.

Distribution. Southeastern Turkey; northern Syria; Iraq; Arabian Peninsula; Iran.
