Cimex lectularius Linnaeus, 1758  

Cimex lectularius Linnaeus, 1758: 441   ; Cimex improvisus Reuter, 1882: 307   ; Acanthia pipistrelli Bowhill, 1906: 246   (non Jenyns, 1839); Cimex vespertilionis Poppius, 1912: 56   ; Clinocoris peristerae Rotschild, 1912: 87   ; Cimex roubali Hoberlandt, 1942: 130   .

Distribution in Iran. Mazandaran ( Motevalli Haghi et al. 2014; Zorrilla-Vaca et al. 2015), Tehran ( Hoberlandt 1954), Zanjan ( Askari et al. 2009, on lucerne), generally distributed ( Lindberg 1938; Safavi 1986; Modarres Awal 1997; Balvín et al. 2012).

General distribution. Cosmopolitan ( Péricart 1972; Aukema & Rieger 1996); though Péricart (1996) does not mention the species in the Arabian Peninsula, but Walker & Pittaway (1987) do.

Comments. Cimex lectularius   is a parasite of bats and humans ( Safavi 1986; Modarres Awal 1997) and more rarely it has been cited on chickens, other mammals and birds ( Péricart 1972). Recently, French newspapers announced the “invasion” of Paris region by bed bugs originated of the United States, forgetting that North America had been, itself, polluted by bugs brought by European immigrants.
