Abstract

This study is based on specimens of the subfamily Ceutorhynchinae Gistel, 1848 collected in Turkish Thrace by the first author in 2016 and 2017. Amalorrhynchus melanarius (Stephens, 1831) and Parethelcus pollinarius (Forster, 1771) are new records as genera and species for the Ceutorhynchinae fauna of Turkey. Ceutorhynchus duvali C. Brisout de Barneville, 1883 and Nedyus quadrimaculatus (Linnaeus, 1758), both already indicated from Anatolia, are recorded for the first time from Turkish Thrace. A list of all ceutorhynchines occurring in European Turkey is included. The synonymy: Microplontus rugulosus (Herbst, 1795) [= M. melanostigma (Marsham, 1802); syn. rev.]. is re-established.
