During a survey on the damaged elms in Almahdi, Shaghayegh, Taslihat and Magidiyeh parks in the summer of 2010, the larvae and pupae of a Bucculatrix species were collected. After emerging of the adult specimens, they were determined as Bucculatrix ulmifoliae M. Hering, 1931. As far as our knowledge, five Bucculatrix species are reported from Iran so far: Bucculatrix ulmella, 1848 which is reported on elm tree in Tehran region (1), B. pomifoliella Clemens, ?that is collected in Khorasan region on apple tree (7), and the three species namely B. iranica Deschka, 1981, B. endospiralis Deschka, 1981 and B. pectinella Deschka, 1981 which are collected from the south of Iran and introduced as new species by Deschka (1981) (2). This is the first report of Bucculatrix ulmifoliae from Iran. During recent years this species has caused extreme damages on the elm trees in some parts of Tehran.
