Özet

This study aimed to identify the ground ensign scale insects in 5 provinces (Agri, Bitlis, Hakkari, Igdir, and Van) in eastern Anatolia, Turkey. In order to achieve this goal, Ortheziidae species were collected from natural and cultivated plants in the 5 provinces listed above between 2005 and 2008. A total of 3 species were found, among them 2 species (Orthezia maroccana Kozar & Konczne Benedicty and Orthezia yashushii Kuwana) that are new records for the Turkish scale insect fauna.
