During sampling on species diversity of arthropods associated with ash trees in Mashhad and vicinity, a number of specimens of parasitoids from Eulophidae were collected in May 2013. They were identified by Dr. Lütfiye Gençer (Cumhuriyet University of Turkey) as: Aprostocetus catius (Walker, 1839), Chrysocharis pubicornis (Zetterstedt, 1838), Neochrysocharis chlorogaster (Erdös, 1966), Asecodes erxias (Walker, 1848). These species were reported for the first time from Iran. Eulophidae is the largest family in the Chalcidoidea including over 3900 species, 540 genera and four subfamilies including Euderinae, Eulophinae, Entedoninae, Tetrastichinae. So far, 106 species belonging to 37 genera in four subfamilies (Entedoninae, Euderina, Eulophinae, Tetrastichinae) from Iran have been recorded
