A study on the Sciocorini Amyot & Serville, 1843 and Strachiini Mulsant & Rey, 1866 (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae: Pentatominae) faunas of the Kelkit Valley (Turkey)
Seven species belonging to 3 genus within the Sciocorini Amyot & Serville, 1843 tribe and 9 species belonging to 3 genus within the Strachiini Mulsant & Rey, 1866 tribe were determined during field studies performed in 2005 and 2007 in different localities in Kelkit Valley inside the city borders of Erzincan, Giresun, Gümüşhane, Sivas and Tokat. 10 of these species are first records for the study area Kelkit Valley whereas 3 species are new records for Black Sea Region. Menaccarus arenicola (Scholtz, 1847) and Trochiscocoris rotundatus rotundatus Horváth, 1895 are species with a rather rare distributional range for Turkey Heteroptera fauna.
