Collembola are the most abundant soil living arthropods found almost everywhere. These small hexapods have remained unknown in many parts of Iran including Lorestan province. In order to study of collembola fauna of this province, soil samples were collected from Khoram-Abad in 2012. The springtails were extracted from collected soil samples by Berlese funnel and were identified after mounting on slides. Seven species belonging to five genera and three families were identified as follows:Family Isotomidae; Isotomodella alticola (Bagnall, 1949(; Folsomides parvulus Stach, 1922;Family Tullbergiidae; Metaphorura denisi Simón Benito, 1985;Family Onychiuridae; Protaphorura gisini (Haybach, 1960); P. fimata (Gisin, 1952); Thalassaphorura zschokkei (Handschin, 1919)and T. encarpata (Denis, 1931). The genus Isotomodella Martynova, 1968 and four species, I.alticola, M. denisi, P. gisini and T. zschokkei,are newly reported from Iran. Furthermore, all species are new records for Lorestan province.
