The present faunistic study was performed in East Azarbaijan province, northwest of Iran, in 2015–2016. A total of eleven species belonging to four genera of the subfamily Curculioninae were studied. Rhinusa eversmanni Rosenschoeld, 1838 is recorded for the first time from Iran. Photos of adult habitus of the newly recorded species along with a key to the Iranian species of the snout beetles identified in this study are provided.
