The Cockroach Wasps of Turkey, with a New Record of the Genus Trirogma Westwood 1841 (Hymenoptera: Ampulicidae)
In this study, the genus Trirogma, which belongs in the subfamily Ampulicinae (Hymenoptera: Ampulicidae), was recorded for the first time from Turkey. The new record is based on a male specimen of Trirogma caerulea Westwood, 1841 from the Antalya province. Unlike other members of the genus, which have a limited distribution in the Oriental region and its immediate surroundings, T. caerulea has a relatively wider distribution in the Palearctic. With this study, the distribution area of this species was extended to the western Mediterranean coasts of Turkey, which is also the westernmost distribution point of the genus. A preliminary list of the species of Ampulicidae found in Turkey was also presented.
