New records of Dryinidae Haliday, 1833 (Hymenoptera, Chrysidoidea) from Iran are listed. Two subfamilies (Anteoninae R. Perkins, 1912 and Aphelopinae R. Perkins, 1912), three genera (Anteon Jurine, 1807; Aphelopus Dalman, 1823; and Bocchus Ashmead, 1893) and five species viz. Anteon abdulnouri Olmi, 1987, An. pubicorne (Dalman, 1818), Aphelopus melaleucus (Dalman, 1818), Ap. orphanidesi Olmi, 1994 and Bocchus hyalinus Olmi, 1998 are newly recorded from Iran. The putative male of Dryinus tamaricicola Rakhshani & Olmi, 2016 is discovered in Iran and described. Aphelopus orphanidesi is recorded for the first time from Germany and Sweden. The diagnostic characters of the newly known species are re-evaluated. A key to the Iranian Dryinidae (excluding Gonatopodinae Kieffer, 1906) and a brief description is presented and a distribution map is provided for each species.
