Among them, <em>Xanthochilus omissus </em>(Horváth, 1911) (Rhyparochromidae) and <em>Ceratocranum</em> <em>caucasicum</em> Jakovlev, 1879 (Scutelleridae) are new for the Heteroptera fauna of Turkey. Furthermore, <em>Dryophilocoris</em> (<em>Dryophilocoris</em>) <em>flavoquadrimaculatus</em> (De Geer, 1773), <em>Odontoplatys suturalis </em>(Jakovlev, 1883) (Miridae) and <em>Engistus salinus </em>Jakovlev, 1874 (Geocoridae) that had been recorded from Turkey only once, are recorded from new localities. Additionally, most of the recorded species are new for the provinces that they are collected from, and following ten species are recorded from the Eastern Anatolian region for the first time: <em>Cyllecoris histrionius</em> (Linnaeus, 1767), <em>Eurycolpus aureolus</em> Seidenstücker, 1961, <em>Odontoplatys suturalis</em> (Jakovlev, 1883), <em>Polymerus</em> (<em>Poeciloscytus</em>) <em>brevicornis</em> (Reuter, 1879) (Miridae), <em>Jalla</em> <em>dumosa</em> (Linnaeus, 1758), <em>Leprosoma</em> <em>tuberculatum</em> Jakovlev, 1874, <em>Picromerus</em> <em>conformis</em> (Herrich-Schäffer, 1841) (Pentatomidae), <em>Megalonotus</em> <em>emarginatus</em> (Rey, 1888), <em>Peritrechus nubilus</em> (Fallén, 1807) (Rhyparochromidae) and <em>Horvathiolus</em> <em>syriacus</em> (Reuter, 1885) (Lygaeidae). Finally, the Heteroptera fauna of Transcaucasian region is briefly analyzed. It is revealed that among 1113 species known from this region, 255 species have not yet been recorded from Turkey and most of these species remain to be discovered from Eastern Anatolian region of Turkey, reflecting the need for future field researches in this region.</span></p> BARIŞ ÇERÇİ, NESLİHAN GÜLTEKİN, CELALETTİN GÖZÜAÇIK, MELEK GÜDEK GÜÇLÜ, DİLEK DOĞAN Copyright (c) 2022 Magnolia press https://www.mapress.com/jib/article/view/2022.36.1.1 Wed, 23 Nov 2022 00:00:00 +1300
