Check-list of the family Cimbicidae of Turkey and some biological observations (Hymenoptera: Symphyta)

Abstract :

A total of 17 species in six genera of the sawfly family Cimbicidae were found in Turkey. The material was collected in various provinces, mainly in the eastern part of the country, during 1987-2009. The paper gave an updated list of species together with distribution records from own observations and literature. Five species are reported as new to Turkey, namely Cimbex femoratus (Linné, 1758), Corynis crassicornis (Rossi, 1790), Corynis orientalis (Konow, 1898), Corynis similis (Mocsáry, 1880) and Trichiosoma latreillii Leach, 1817. New localities are added for previously known species
