This study is based upon material of families Anthocoridae, Lyctocoridae, Nabidae, Reduviidae and Tingidae collected from different localities of Turkey between 1968 and 2012. In this study, 8 species and 4 genera to Anthocoridae, 1 species and 1 genus to Lyctocoridae, 6 species and 2 genera to Nabidae, 11 species and 6 genera to Reduviidae and 20 species and 11 genera to Tingidae are recorded which represent a total of 46 species and 24 genera from various regions of Turkey. Among them, Anthocoris pilosus (Jakovlev, 1877), Temnostethus reduvinus (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1850), Orius minutus (Linnaeus, 1758), O. niger (Wolff, 1811) (Anthocoridae), Nabis pseudoferus Remane, 1949 (Nabidae), Rhynocoris punctiventris (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1846) (Reduviidae) and Dictyla echii (Schrank, 1782) (Tingidae) have been found as the most numerous and widespread species. Himacerus major (A. Costa, 1842) (Nabidae), Agramma (Agramma) laetum (Fallen, 1807) and Elasmotropis testacea selecta (Horváth, 1891) (Tingidae) are new records for the Turkish fauna. In addition, new localities were found for some species which have already been reported in Turkey.
