Abstract

 This study was carried out to determine the tachinid parasitoids of coleopterous hosts from some localities in Akıncılar and Suşehri (Sivas-Turkey). Phaedon cochlariae (Fabricus, 1792) (Col.: Chrysomelidae) for Anthomyiopsis plagioderae (Mesnil, 1972) (Dip.: Tachinidae) and Chrysomela polita L. (Col.: Chrysomelidae) for Meigenia simplex Tschorsnig et Herting 1998 (Dip.: Tachinidae) are recorded for the first time as tachinid/host-couples. Additionally A. plagioderae is recorded for the first time from Turkey
