Abstract

The family Cecidomyiidae is one of the largest in the order Diptera. Gall midges are small, inconspicuous flies, but they may be very important both in forest ecosystems and in agroecosystems. The presently known fauna of gall midges in Turkey includes 71 species belonging to 38 genera. Forest gall midge (Diptera: Cecidomyiidae) fauna of Turkey was examined to determine that the composition consists of 33 species in 24 genera from 34 host tree species representing 15 tree genera. Of these, 31 species are phytophagous, 1 species is zoophagous, and 1 species is phytosaprophagous.
