Abstract :

The paper presents a new record for Turkey in the leaf-beetle genus Pachybrachis Chevrolat, three new records for European Turkey in the leaf-beetle genera Cryptocephalus Geoffroy and Pachybrachis Chevrolat, and also the confirmations with exact locality data of the presence in Turkey of four species-group taxa in the leaf-beetle genera Cryptocephalus Geoffroy and Gonioctena Chevrolat. The presence in Turkey of four aforementioned species-group taxa has been reported as there are in TR-E without exact locality data in European Turkey up to now. So that the presence in Turkey of these species-group taxa is confirmed with exact locality data for the first time. In addition, many regional and provincial new records for Turkey are also given in the text.
