Abstract

A total of 13 species of Sarcophagidae (Diptera) belonging to 2 subfamilies collected from different localities in Turkey between 1994 and 2006 were examined. Wohlfahrtia meigeni (Schiner, 1862) is recorded for the first time from Turkey. This new record increases the number of flesh flies known from Turkey to 86. New locality records are given for all 13 species.
