Özet

The subfamily Telmatogetoninae and Thalassomya frauenfeldi Schiner, 1856 are reported for the first time from Turkey. The material was sampled as a result of evaluating three benthic samples. The samples were taken within the framework of an environmental impact assessment project conducted in Izmir Bay, western Turkey, in April 2009. As a consequence, the number of subfamilies of Chironomidae known from Turkey has increased to 7.
