Abstract
R. nursei is for the first time reported from the South of Iran, a considerable widening of the range of this rather ill-known sp. towards the West, and redefining its geographical range as West-Oriental and rather typical of semi-arid climates. The nearest certified record from Pakistan is situated some 1000 km NE of the locations in Iran, but it can be supposed that numerous populations live in the gap. The specimens, collected in Rudan and Ziarat Ali, Hormozgan province, S Iran, lived along the grassy shores of 2 slow-flowing rivers, a habitat that is also typical of the sp. further East. A found at Sarbaz, Beluchistan, confirms that this small and inconspicuous sp. may be widespread in suitable biotopes of southern and eastern Iran, and probably in the West of Pakistan as well.
