We have studied the parasitic flies of wildlife of Haftad-Gholleh Protected Area, Iran, for the first time and report here the three hematophagous fly species of birds: the louse fly Ornithophila metallica (Schiner) (Hippoboscidae), and bird nest flies Trypocalliphora braueri (Hendel) and Protocalliphora azurea (Fallen) (Calliphoridae). The genera and species O. metallica and T. braueri are new to Iran.
