Poorly known taxa for Turkish leaf beetles (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) with zoogeographical remarks

Abstract : Ten poorly-known taxa for Turkish leaf beetles, Pachybrachys velarum Warchalowski, 1998 and Cryptocephalus paphlagonius Sassi et Kısmalı, 2000 to subfamily Cryptocephalinae, Bromius obscurus (Linnaeus, 1758) to subfamily Eumolpinae, Diorhabda persica (Faldermann, 1837), Galerucella tenella (Linnaeus, 1761) and Galeruca rufa Germar, 1824 to subfamily Galerucinae, Phyllotreta striolata (Fabricius, 1803), Altica lythri Aube, 1843, Dibolia rugulosa Redtenbacher, 1849 and Psylliodes chrysocephalus ab. collaris Weise, 1888 to subfamily Alticinae are presented with zoogeographical remarks and chorotype information. All taxa except Galeruca rufa Germar, 1824 are secondly reported from Turkey after the first record or original description. Galeruca rufa Germar, 1824 is recorded for the first time with the exact locality in Turkey. Pachybrachys velarum Warchalowski, 1998 and Cryptocephalus paphlagonius Sassi et Kısmalı, 2000 are endemic to Turkey. So, many new data are contributed to information on range of these species in Turkey.
