Etymology of Cerambycoidea in Turkey: Part II – Taxon names attributed to a place or places (Coleoptera: Cerambycoidea)

Abstract :

The paper presents etymology of Turkish Cerambycoidea taxa that have only been restricted to valid taxon names. The present study covers the second part including taxon names attributed to a place or places of the serial work. In the text, family-group names, genus-group names and species-groups names evaluated in separate sections. As a result, while there is no family-group name, a total of 11 genus-group names (3 genus names and 8 subgenus names) and 234 species-group names (139 species names and 95 subspecies names), corresponding to 22.74% of the whole species-group taxa of Turkey (1029), attributed to a place or places are determined and presented into lists. A total of 155 endemic species-group taxa (82 species and 73 subspecies), corresponding to 15.06% of the whole species-group taxa of Turkey or 29.92% of the whole endemic species-group taxa (518), among determined 234 species-group names (139 species names and 95 subspecies names) attributed to a place or places are endemic to Turkey.
