Four new species of Camponotus are described in Turkey: C. (Myrmentoma) aktaci C. Karaman new species, C. (Myrmentoma) anatolicus new species, C. (Myrmentoma) hirtus new species, and C. (Myrmentoma) honaziensis new species. In addition, two species, C. (Myrmentoma) abrahami Forel, 1913 and C. (Tanaemyrmex) oasium Forel, 1890 are reported for the first time from Turkey. We reexamined the C. fedtschenkoi material collected in Eastern Anatolia and identified the material as similar to C. buddhae. Therefore, C. fedtschenkoi is a dubious record for Turkish ant fauna. An identification key for all known Turkish species of Camponotus is presented.
