Abstract. Two new species, Eremogryllodes spinulatus sp. nov. and E. balouchi sp. nov., are described from the south of Iran. These crickets were collected in caves located in Fars and Sistan & Balouchestan Provinces. They differ from other Iranian congeners mainly in some distinct characters of ventral ectoparameres in the male genitalia, namely structure of distal and proximal sclerites of ventral ectoparamere, and shape of dorsal ectoparamere and rachis.
