Abstract

The genus Chelaseius Muma & Denmark represented by C. valliculosus Kolodochka, the genus Typhloseiulus Chant & McMurtry represented by T. carmone (Chant & Yoshida-Shaul) and T. peculiaris (Kolodochka), Amblyseius adjaricus Wainstein & Vartapetov, A. meridionalis Berlese, Kampimodromus ericinus Ragusa & Tsolakis, Neoseiulus alustoni (Livshitz & Kuznetsov), N. karandinosi Papadoulis, Emmanouel & Kapaxidi, Proprioseiopsis ovatus (Garman), Typhlodromus (Anthoseius) kerkirae Swirski & Ragusa, Typhlodromus (Typhlodromus) exhilaratus Ragusa and T. (T.) pritchardi Arutunjan are recorded for the first time for Turkish fauna. Amblyseius adjaricus, C. valliculosus, K. ericinus and N. alustoni are re-described and illustrated. The measurements of the other eight species were provided to access intraspecific variations and to secure future diagnosis. A revised key for the identification of Turkish phytoseiids is also included here.
