The larvae of the Tephritidae, known as fruit flies, feed on the fruits and cause decaying and reducing their market-friendliness. In this study, the adults were collected once a week using common entomological net as well as Malaise traps during 2009-2010 in Horand region, East Azerbaijan. Thirteen species belonging to seven genera of subfamily Tephritinae were identified. All these species are new records for Horand region and two species, marked with an asterisk, are reported as new to the Iranian fauna.
