Feeding records are presented for 65 species belonging to 16 genera of Turkish Alticinae (flea beetles). The determined associations results from field observations gathered during a five-year-period study. Precise host plant, geographical data as well as pertinent literature citations are included for each species. Lamiaceae, Brassicaceae, Scrophulariaceae, Boraginaceae, and Asternceae seem to be the mostly preferred host plant families.
