Additional data to the Aphodiinae fauna (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) of the Sündiken Mountains Turkey

Doğan Erhan ERSOY [1] , Abdullah HASBENLİ [2]


Aphodiinae subfamily is represented in the Palearctic region with 6762 species and subspecies belonging to 521 genera. This family is presented by taxa of 61 genera and 161 species and subspecies in Turkey. Nineteen species are endemic to Turkey. This study was conducted in Sündiken Mountains in Eskişehir province, from 2011 to 2013. The samples were caught with pitfall traps, light traps and directly by hand or forceps. Distribution maps for Turkey, aedeagus and habitus photographs were presented. 29 species recorded from here, nineteen new city records given from Eskisehir province.
