A new contribution to the knowledge of longicorn beetles of Turkey from North-East Anatolia (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) with two new records for Turkey

Abstract :

The paper presents new data on longicorn beetles from North-Eastern Anatolian part of Turkey. The available specimens were collected from Ağrı, Ardahan, Erzurum, Iğdır and Kars provinces in 2015, 2020 and mostly 2022. As a result, a total of thirty species-group taxa (sixteen species and fourteen subspecies) of fifteen genera belonging to five subfamilies of Cerambycidae family were determined. Accordingly, Phytoecia (Musaria) faldermanni Faldermann, 1837 and Phytoecia (Neomusaria) kazaryani Danilevsky, 2020 are determined as the first record for Turkey. Echinocerus floralis aulicus (Laicharting, 1784) and Echinocerus floralis armeniacus (Reitter, 1890) are upgraded to the species level as Echinocerus aulicus (Laicharting, 1784) stat. nov. and Echinocerus armeniacus (Reitter, 1890) stat. nov.. A total of four species-group taxa (two species and two subspecies) of three genera are endemic to Turkey. In addition, many taxa are presented as new records for researched provinces in the text.
