Abstract

As result of faunistic studies from Afyonkarahisar province in central western Anatolia, three new species of the subgenus Tropogastrosipalia Scheerpeltz belonging to the genus Geostiba Thomson are described and illustrated: Geostiba ahirensis sp. nov. (Ahir Daglari), G. sandiklica sp. nov. (Sanchkh Dagi), and G. karakusensis sp. nov. (Karakus Daglari). A key is presented for distinguishing the new species from related congeners and a map shows the distributions of seven species.
