Abstract

Kresnaia beschkovi (Ganev, 1987), which has a restricted distribution in Europe and south-western Asia, is recorded for the first time from Turkey. The species is active at night and was collected in oak forest by a UV light trap in 2018 from Batman province. It has been determined with extremely low population in the cold month. Figures of the adult male and its genitalia are illustrated. The new distributional data and ecological notes are discussed.
