The Acroceridae family, an endoparasite in true spiders, is also referred to as spider flies. In this study, the list of Turkish Acrocerid species was updated with the newly recorded acrocerid species. The specimens in Zoological Museum of Gazi University collected from different regions of Turkey at different times (1997-2013) were evaluated. Ogcodes hirtus (Sack, 1936) recording the fauna of Turkey were re-evaluated. Acrocera laeta Gerstäcker, 1856 from Konya in central Anatolia and Ogcodes pallipes Latreille in Olivier, 1812 from Ardahan in northern east of Anatolia are recorded for the first time. With these new records, nine species are known from the Turkish Acrocerid fauna. The distribution maps of the species are given.
Gerçek örümceklerde endoparazit olan Acroceridae familyası, örümcek sinekleri olarak da anılır. Bu çalışmada, Türk Acrocerid tür listesi yeni kayıtlarla birlikte güncellenmiştir. Gazi Üniversitesi Zooloji Müzesi’nde bulunan Türkiye’nin farklı bölgelerinden farklı zamanlarda (1997-2013) toplanan örnekler değerlendirilmiştir. Ogcodes hirtus (Sack, 1936)’un Türkiye faunasından kaydı yeniden değerlendirilmiştir. Acrocera laeta Gerstäcker, 1856 Orta Anadolu’da Konya’dan ve Ogcodes pallipes Latreille in Olivier, 1812 Kuzeydoğu Anadolu’da Ardahan’dan ilk defa kaydedilmiştir. Bu yeni kayıtlarla birlikte, Türkiye Acrocerid faunasından dokuz tür bilinmektedir. Türlerin dağılış haritaları verilmiştir.
