The genus Conophorus Meigen, 1803 (Diptera: Bombyliidae: Conophorini) was studied in the north and northwestern parts of Iran. Three species of the genus Conophorus were identified; two of them are recorded for the first time from Iran, namely: C. pseudaduncus Paramonov, 1929 and C. rjabovi Paramonov, 1929, in addition to C. glaucescens (Loew, 1863), which was previously recorded in Iran. Morphological characters, geographical distributions, and an identification key for the three collected species are provided.
