Abstract

In this study; Pseudoscorpionids collected from Kelkit Valley, orumcek Forest and Tirebolu-Giresun have been evaluated systematically. Three species belonging to the subgenus Neobisium (sensu stricto) have been determined. Of these; Neobisium (N.) granulatum Beier, 1937 and Neobisium (N.) peloponnesiacum (Beier, 1928) are new records for the Turkish fauna. While Neobisium (N.) intractabile Beier, 1973 was only described from two trytonymph specimens, description of the males of this species are given for the first time.
