During a faunal study in the years 2012- 2013 on coccinellid beetles in East Azarbayjan Province, several coccinellid specimens were collected in Namnagh (46° 34' 27" N, 38° 47' 0" E) and Horand (47° 21' 58" N, 38° 51' 2" E) regions, respectively in Jolfa and Ahar cities. Specimens were identified after preparing slides from male and female genital organs. Based on identification keys in related references, collected specimens were identified as Vibidia duodecimguttata (Poda, 1761). This identification was confirmed by Dr. Helmut Fürsch (Bayerwaldstraße, 26, D-94161, Ruderting, Germany). This species is recorded for the first time from Iran.
