In this study, infected seeds of pasture legume plants (Fabaceae) were collected from different regions in East-Azarbayjan province during 2010-2013. Host plants and their seed feeder pests were determined by field collecting and laboratory rearing of insects on the respective hosts. Thus, a total of 124 legume specimense (belonging to 32 species) were collected from 7 sites across rangelands of which 71 specimense (belonging to 26 species) was positive for seed-eating insects. Based on identification study, many extracted granivores from infected seeds, were Hymenoptera and Coleoptera. Among the seed-eating species, 13 Bruchidae species belonging to 3 genera (Bruchidius, Bruchus and Paleoacanthoscelides) were identified as follows: Bruchidius annulicornis (Allard), Bruchidius longulus Schilsky, Bruchidius nanus (Germar), Bruchidius pusillus (Germar), Bruchidius sp., Bruchus nikdeli Delobel & Sadeghi, Bruchus emarginatus Allard, Bruchus hamatus Miller, Bruchus concinnus Klug, Bruchus sibiricus Germar, Bruchus libanensis Zampetti, Bruchus lugubris Fahraeus, Paleoacanthoscelides gilvus (Gyllenhal).
