Abstract
In this paper, we demonstrate the occurrence of Gomphus flavipes in Turkey. The single European Turkish record of this taxon was until now confused with the closely related Asiatic species Gomphus ubadschii, therefore it could be said that G. flavipes is new to Turkey. The distribution of the two species in Turkey is evaluated. Besides, Ophiogomphus cecilia, a species which was previously reported from Anatolia based on a misidentification, now for the first time is recorded for Turkey, in the Turkish Thrace.
