Abstract :

We had the opportunity to study some rare material of Alticini collected during the expedition of Çankırı province in 2013-2015. As a result of this, a total of 13 rare species belonging to 8 genera of Turkish flea beetles were determined. All species are the first record for Çankırı province. 9 species of them as Aeschrocnemis serbica (Kutschera), Crepidodera lamina (Bedel), Dibolia depressiuscula Letzner, Chaetocnema arida Foudras, Longitarsus hermonensis Furth, Longitarsus kopdagiensis Gruev & Aslan, Longitarsus reichei (Allard), Longitarsus scutellaris (Mulsant & Rey) and Mantura chrysanthemi (Koch) are the first record for Western Black Sea region of Turkey. Also 3 species of them as Longitarsus australis (Mulsant & Rey), Longitarsus aubozaorum Biondi and Psylliodes marcida (Illiger) are the new records for Black Sea region of Turkey (incl. Western Black Sea region). In addition 4 species of them as Aeschrocnemis serbica (Kutschera), Chaetocnema arida Foudras, Longitarsus kopdagiensis Gruev & Aslan and Longitarsus reichei (Allard) are the first record for Central Anatolian region of Turkey.
