Abstract

Fourteen species and subspecies of Turkish Carabinae belonging in the family Carabidae were examined in detail. This represents about 15% of the Carabinae fauna of Turkey. This study is based on material collected from different altitudes and climatic conditions and from localities of different vegetation, between 2004 and 2005 from Kahramanmaras and the surrounding towns located in south central Turkey. Adult length/width body ratios, photographs of the adults, detailed descriptions of the mate genital organs and photographs, collecting localities, distribution in Turkey and in the world, as well as chorotypes are given for each species.
