A preliminary list of Heteroptera collected in Mardin and Siirt provinces from South-Eastern Anatolia of Turkey (Hemiptera)

Abstract :

Fifty eight species and subspecies of Hemiptera, Heteroptera are recorded from Mardin and Siirt provinces. Specimens were collected by light trap in Pistachio and Cherry orchards during July and August 2009. The species belong to 50 genera and 11 families. The two best represented families are Miridae and Lygaeidae (respectively 16 genera and 27 genera). No species appears to be pest for agriculture, but surprisingly no representative of Pentatomidae, Scutelleridae or Tingidae were captured by the light trap. Eight species and subspecies (seven mirids and one reduviid) are newly reported for Turkey
