Xanthogaleruca subcoerulescens (Weise, 1884), has been rediscovered recently in southern Turkey. Beetles were found feeding on the leaves of Celtis glabrata Steven ex Planchon (Ulmaceae), leaving behind small, round holes. Redescriptions of the male and female are presented. The spermatheca is illustrated for the first time.
