The spider fauna of Iran is poorly known, particularly in the eastern parts of Iran, where there are still several areas that are not well known. As a result of the study of spider fauna in organic and conventional wheat fields of Khorasan-e-Razavi Province during 2011-2012, a total of 10 families, 18 genera, and 19 species were recorded. Among the specimens, Gnaphosa lucifuga (Walckenaer, 1802) and Uroctea limbata (C.L. Koch, 1843) were new for the Iranian spider fauna.
