Abstract : As a result of the project in Iran, certain excellent collections of mammals were obtained. Large collections of taxonomically difficult groups, such as dipodid, microtine and gerbilline rodents, were made. The majority of the collection is of small mammals; relatively few non-rodents were obtained. The collection reflects in numbers of specimens the numbers of species of small mammals in the Iranian fauna, namely--rodents, bats, shrews and rabbits in that order, and their associated ectoparasites.
