Abstract

This study is based upon material of families Anthocoridae, Lyctocoridae, Nabidae, Reduviidae and Tingidae collected from different localities of Turkey between 1968 and 2012. In this study, 8 species and 4 genera to Anthocoridae, 1 species and 1 genus to Lyctocoridae, 6 species and 2 genera to Nabidae, 11 species and 6 genera to Reduviidae and 20 species and 11 genera to Tingidae are recorded which represent a total of 46 species and 24 genera from various regions of Turkey. Among them, Anthocoris pilosus (Jakovlev, 1877), Temnostethus reduvinus (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1850), Orius minutus (Linnaeus, 1758), O. niger (Wolff, 1811) (Anthocoridae), Nabis pseudoferus Remane, 1949 (Nabidae), Rhynocoris punctiventris (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1846) (Reduviidae) and Dictyla echii (Schrank, 1782) (Tingidae) have been found as the most numerous and widespread species. Himacerus major (A. Costa, 1842) (Nabidae), Agramma (Agramma) laetum (Fallen, 1807) and Elasmotropis testacea selecta (Horváth, 1891) (Tingidae) are new records for the Turkish fauna. In addition, new localities were found for some species which have already been reported in Turkey.

475 species in the world (Henry, 2009). Usually Anthocoridae and Lyctocoridae are
predators (Carayon, 1961; Péricart, 1972) but some are known (at least a part of their
life) to be phytophagous (e.g., some Orius Wolff, 1811 eat pollen - Salas Aguilar and
Ehler, 1977) some of them can facultatively suck blood of birds, rodents, or humans

Male genitalia are asymmetric with only one paramere developed and female ovipositor
is of laciniate type. Male practice “traumatic insemination”. Traumatic insemaniation is
a particular way of fecundation known in some Cimicomorpha such as Anthocoridae,

Cimicidae, Prostemmatinae. During mating, male drills females’s body and inject the
sperm directly in the abdomen outside genitalia. Spermatozoa then migrate, by blood
way, towards oocytes and allow fecundation (translation of Carayon 1977 by PM)
(Schuh and Slater, 1995). Formerly 3 subfamilies were recognized in Anthocoridae:
Anthocorinae, Lasiochilinae and Lyctocorinae (e.g. Péricart, 1972), but Schuh and Stys
(1991) and Schuh and Slater (1995) treated the last two as families Lasiochilidae and
Lyctocoridae. The phylogeny of the Anthocoridae was recently studied by Jung et al.,
2010). Reuter (1884) revised the family at world scale, Péricart (1972) studied western
Palaearctic fauna, Herring (1966) and Kelton (1963) the Nearctic fauna. The Palaearctic
fauna was catalogued by Péricart (1996), with supplement by Aukema et al., (2013).
Nabidae (damsel bugs) have world scale distribution. This little to medium size

ground where they disappear thank to their cryptic coloration (mainly yellowish or
light brown). The antennae, rostrum and legs are thin; the fore wing does not have a
cuneus. Front and intermediate tibiae bear an adhesive pad (the “fossula spongiosa”).
Male genitalia are symmetric or not and female ovipositor is of laciniate type (Péricart,
1987). Carayon (1952, 1955) shown that “traumatic insemination” exists in Nabidae,
a phenomenon also known in Anthocoridae (see above). At world scale there are 20
genera and about 400 species (Kerzhner, 1981, 1996; Kerzhner and Henry, 2008)
distributed in 2 subfamilies only (Schuh and Slater, 1995). The Palaearctic fauna was
revised and keyed by Kerzhner (1981) and Péricart (1987); catalogue was compiled
by Kerzhner (1996), with supplement by Aukema et al., (2013).
Reduviidae or assassin bugs are world scale distributed predators of 2 to more
than 50 mm long. They are more common in tropical and subtropical zones and
constitute a group of nearly 6900 species divided in 23 clear cut subfamilies (Weirauch
and Munro 2009, Putshkov and Moulet 2009). The coloration of Reduviidae is more
often cryptic (brown, brownish, yellowish) but some are red, yellow, orange and
black colored (aposematic colors). The rostrum nearly always is short and strong in
relation with the predation habits. Formerly, Reduviidae were considered generalist
predators but this is not true for many species which are specialized to certain
preys (e.g. millipeds, ants, termites) or a limited number of preys or hematophagous
(Triatominae). The fore legs are raptorial (Phymatinae, Emesinae) or the front tibiae
(and sometimes intermediate) bear an adhesive pad (the “fossula spongiosa”) for

genitalia are symmetric, and female ovipositor is of plate-like type. Reduviids live in
different biotopes (forest, meadows), on the ground (Harpactorinae, Stenopodainae) as
well as on the vegetation (Phymatinae, Harpactorinae). Some species, e.g. Reduvius
personatus Linnaeus, 1758, live also in human houses or stables. Usually Reduviidae
are univoltine but in some species the development takes more than one year. At
world scale one count 1000 genera and around 7000 species (Putshkov and Moulet,
2009). Turkish fauna was studied by several workers as Horváth, Puton (in the 19th

was monographed recently by Putshkov and Moulet (2009), World catalogue was
provided by Maldonado Capriles (1990), and the Palaearctic catalogue by Putshkov
and Putshkov (1996) with supplement by Aukema et al. (2013).
Tingidae are quite unique among the Heteroptera thanks to their habitus, the
pronotum and fore wings having a delicate and minute network of little areoles that
ressemble a lace (lace bugs is their vernacular name) (Froeschner, 2001). Tingidae
are group of Cimicomorpha with worldwide distribution and consisting of nearly 2600
species (Drake and Ruhoff, 1965; Montemayor and Coscarón, 2005; Zhang et al.,

appendices (except in Copium Thunberg, 1822 which possess strong antennae). The
male genitalia are symmetric and female ovipositor is of the laciniate type. Larvae of the
majority of species bear on their body very numerous pin-like, tooth-like or anastomosed
spines or digitations. They are phytophagous and feed upon a restricted number of plants
(some are nearly monophagous e.g. Derephysia sinuatocollis Puton, 1879 on Clematis
see Dauphin 1986) though other have a greater trophic spectrum (e.g. Dictyla Stål,
1874 on Boraginaceae). Some Tingidae are agricultural pests when attacking ochards
particularly pear-trees (Stephanitis pyri (Fabricius, 1774), Rosaceae (Monosteira
unicostata (Mulsant and Rey, 1852) or Platanus (Corythucha ciliata (Say, 1832) Drake
and Davis (1960) split the Tingidae into 3 subfamilies: Tinginae, Cantacaderinae,
Vianaidinae, a systematic scheme generally adopted by workers though some have
considered Vianaidinae as an independent family (Kormilev, 1955; Stys and Kerzhner,
1975; Froeschner, 1996; Lis, 1999; Montemayor and Carpintero, 2007; Schuh et al.,
2006, 2009). The West-Palaearctic fauna was monographed by Péricart (1983) and
catalogued by Péricart and Golub (1996), with supplement by Aukema et al. (2013).
The aim of this paper is to bring new collect and biological data on Anthocoridae,
Lyctocoridae, Nabidae, Reduviidae and Tingidae in Turkey. In this study, 8 species
of 4 genera from Anthocoridae, 1 species of 1 genus from Lyctocoridae, 6 species of
2 genera from Nabidae, 11 species of 6 genera from Reduviidae and 20 species of
11 genera from Tingidae are recorded. In total, 46 species from 24 genera of these
families are recorded from Turkey.

DISCUSSION
In this study, 8 species of 4 genera from Anthocoridae, 1 species of 1 genus
from Lyctocoridae, 6 species of 2 genera from Nabidae, 11 species of 6 genera from
Reduviidae and 20 species of 11 genera from Tingidae are recorded. In total, 46
species from 24 genera of these families are recorded from Turkey. Among them,
Anthocoris pilosus (Jakovlev, 1877), Temnostethus reduvinus (Herrich-Schäffer,
1850), Orius minutus (Linnaeus, 1758), O. niger (Wolff, 1811) (Anthocoridae), Nabis
pseudoferus Remane, 1949 (Nabidae), Rhynocoris punctiventris (Herrich-Schäffer,
1846) (Reduviidae) and Dictyla echii (Schrank, 1782) (Tingidae) have been found the
most abundant and widespread species. Separately, Himacerus major (A. Costa, 1842)
(Nabidae), Agramma (Agramma) laetum (Fallen, 1807) and Elasmotropis testacea
selecta (Horváth, 1891) (Tingidae) are new records for the Turkish fauna. In addition,
new localities were found for some species which have already been reported in Turkey
64
YILDIRIM, E., YAZICI, G., KUL, R., MOULET, P.
Regular collections of bugs between 1968 and 2012 in Turkey allowed the caught
of a representative (though not complete) sample of the fauna of Heteroptera: 24
genera and 46 species belonging to families Anthocoridae, Lyctocoridae, Nabidae,
Reduviidae and Tingidae. The majority of the species belong to mediterranean or
euro siberian faunal kingdoms.
The collect data are interesting for national or regional distribution of species (many
new localities added to known distribution) and they allowed the discovery of three
new taxa for Turkey. They also give indications on the biology of the species (dates
of the 1st or the last caught); the altitude of collect station is greatly indicative too.
All these data contribute to a better knowledge of turkish fauna and, second, of
the ecology of Heteroptera in the north east of mediterranean basin, particularly the
least common of them.

Marchalina hellenica is a sap sucking scale insect endemic to the Aegean basin and it has been introduced to several regions in Greece and Turkey to increase pine honey production. It is also considered as a pest since heavy infestation may leave the host trees vulnerable to secondary pests. An understanding of its natural predators would facilitate planning biocontrol programs. Although there are several studies reporting the predators of M. hellenica in its native range, there is no study identifying those in its introduced range. We aimed to determine predators of M. hellenica in Burdur, one of its introduced sites in Turkey. We carried out sampling through regular visits in an M. hellenica-infested locality nearby Burdur Lake. Through field and laboratory observations , we identified 19 species predating upon M. hel-lenica. Comparing predators reported in previous studies in its native range and those we found in the present study showed that 12 of the species that we found are new reports for the species predating upon M. hellenica. The highest number of predator individuals belonged to the monophagous Neoleucopis kartliana. Myrrha octodecim-guttata, Chilocorus bipustulatus and Harmonia quadripunc-tata were also the most frequently observed predators.
... Studies on the Heteroptera in Turkey, revealed that Rhopoalidae are currently represented by 30 species and 12 genera (Pehlivan 1981, Dolling 2006, Önder et al. 2006, Coreidae by 48 species and 20 genera (Dolling 2006, Dursun & Fent 2009, Dursun 2011a, Reduviidae by 58 species and 19 genera (Dursun & Salur 2013;Yıldırım et al, 2013), Nabidae by 24 species and 5 genera (Dursun 2011b), Aradidae by 19 species and 4 genera (Önder et al. 2006) and Pentatomidae by 165 species and 56 genera (Önder et al. 2006. ...

In this study we report new localities for Ectomocoris caucasicus Linnavuori, 1972 (Reduviidae), Aneurus (Aneurodes) avenius (Dufour, 1833) and Aradus cinnamomeus Panzer, 1806 (Aradidae), Brachycarenus languidus (Horváth, 1891), Leptoceraea viridis Jakovlev, 1874 and Myrmus miriformis (Fallén, 1807) (Rhopalidae), Spathocera lobata (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1840) (Coreidae), Alloeorhynchus flavipes (Fieber, 1836) (Nabidae), Pausias martini (Puton, 1890) and Bagrada (Nitilia) amoenula (Walker, 1870) (Pentatomidae). We give exact locality for Leptoceraea viridis in Turkey. We confirm the presence of A. avenius, a species reported in 1883 and 1918, but without any recent records till now. Spathocera lobata, Alloerhynchus flavipes, Aradus cinnamomeus and Pausias martini are new records for the Turkish Thrace (European Part of Turkey) fauna.
