An improved review of Turkish saproxylic Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) from the European Red List with additional twenty-one species

Abstract : 

The researches on saproxylic beetles are very limited. Therefore the threat status of these beetles is not sufficiently known in Turkey. Recently, an important study titled “a review of Turkish saproxylic beetles from the European Red List”was published by Avgın et al. in the year of 2014. Although the mentioned study helped determine the list of Turkish saproxylic beetles from the European Red List for family Cerambycidae, the list needs further investigations to be fully and correctly realized. Consequently an improved list of all Turkish saproxylic beetles from the European Red List for family Cerambycidae is provided with additional twenty-one species. Red List status of Turkish saproxylic Cerambycidae as a preliminary assessment is also achieved
