Aphids fascinated scientists due to their unique life cycles, being a one of the important agricultural pest worldwide, overcoming various applied control strategies and also relatively benefited from global climate change. The importance of aphid studies in developing countries like a Turkey requires additional attention because the effects of aphids on agricultural production. In this aspect, 3 genera, Anthemidaphis Tashev, 1967, Olegia Shaposhnikov, 1979; Pentalonia Coquerel, 1859 and 15 aphid species added to Turkey aphid fauna which are; Anthemidaphis oligommata Tashev 1967, Aphis (Aphis) coreopsidis (Thomas, 1878), Aphis (Aphis) narzikulovi Szelegiewicz, 1963, Aphis (Aphis) pseudeuphorbiae Hille Ris Lambers, 1948, Aphis (Aphis) picridis (Börner, 1950), Chaitophorus clarus Tseng & Tao 1936, Chaitophorus parvus Hille Ris Lambers, 1935, Dysaphis (Pomaphis) gallica (Hille Ris Lambers, 1955), Melanaphis sorghi Theobald, 1904, Metopolophium (Metopolophium) festucae Theobald, 1917, Olegia ulmifoliae (Aoki, 1973), Schizaphis (Schizaphis) nigerrima (Hille Ris Lambers, 1931), Semiaphis heraclei (Takahashi, 1921), Semiaphis pastinacae Börner, 1950, Pentalonia nigronervosa Coquerel, 1859. Recorded species were evaluated for host plant relations, colony appearances, also ant attendance and new interactions observed. Number of the listed aphid species for Turkey aphid fauna increased to 631 with these new records.
