Abstract

A new flea beetle, Aeschrocnemis turcica sp. nov. from Southwest Turkey is described and illustrated. The new species is compared with the closely related species, Aeschrocnemis whiteheadi. (Warchalowski, 1998), occurring in Turkey. They can be easily distinguished by differences in colour, the shape of aedeagus and prothorax, the pronotal punctation, mate tarsi, and the fifth abdominal sternite.
