Abstract :

We had the opportunity to study some rare material of Chrysomelidae collected during the expedition of Çankırı province in 2013-2015. As a result of this, a total of 10 rare species (3 species of Donaciinae, 1 species of Clytrinae, 2 species of Chrysomelinae and 4 species of Galerucinae) of Turkish leaf beetles were determined. All species are the first record for Çankırı province. Especially, 5 species of them are the second records for Turkey as Donacia cinerea Herbst in after 43 years and Plateumaris consimilis (Schrank) in after 7 years to the subfamily Donaciinae, Chrysolina analis (Linnaeus) in after 7 years and Colaphellus sophiae amasiae Machatschke in after 64 years to the subfamily Chrysomelinae, Calomicrus circumfusus (Marsham) in after 4 years and Luperus floralis Faldermann in after 15 years to the subfamily Galerucinae. In addition 5 of them are the new records for Western Black Sea region of Turkey, and also 4 of them are the new records for Central Anatolian region of Turkey
