Some thrips (Thysanoptera) species are seriously harmful in vineyard production areas. Tarsus and Mut locations of Mersin Province located at the southeastern Mediterranean region of Türkiye has an important place in the grape production of Türkiye. It is not known whether there are harmful thrips species in the vineyards in these locations. For this aim, thrips were collected in 2019 by tapping the different plant parts of vines. A total of 14 species were identified. Harmful thrips species such as Drepanothrips reuteri (Uzel), Rubiothrips vitis (Priesner) (Thysanoptera: Thripidae), and predatory thrips species such as Aeolothrips collaris Priesnier, 1919 (Thysanoptera: Aeolothripidae) and Haplothrips globiceps Bagnall, 1934 (Thysanoptera: Phlaeothripidae) in the vineyards in the region were also recorded for the first time. Both adults and larvae of R. vitis were collected relatively in high numbers during the fruiting period of the vineyards sampled.
