In this study, the stony areas surrounding Baghbahadoran City (32° 22‘ 38‘ N, 51° 11‘ 18‘ E) were searched for scorpions during 2018–2019. They were collected using the rock-rolling technique and identified using the identification key to scorpions. The collected specimens included Hottentotta schach. It seems that this is a lithophilic scorpion species. This is the first time this species is reported as a new record from Isfahan Province, central Iran. More species can be probably identified in this province by conducting further studies.



Hottentotta schach, Iran, scorpion.
