Abstract [en]

Old oaks (Quercus spp) are rare all over Europe and Turkey and members of the fauna living in thesehabitats are threatened. Nine stands with old hollow oaks, spread on fi ve areas, were studied in Turkey over 2005-2009. In total 90 hollow oaks were studied. The studied oak species are Quercus cerris, Q. infectoria, Q. trojana, Q.libanii, Q. pubescens, Q. ithaburensis and Q. vulcanica. The same methods have been used for sampling the beetles:window traps on the tree trunk and pit fall traps in the wood mould inside the trunk cavities. The traps have been infi eld from middle of April to the end of September during one season per area from 2005 to 2009. The studied areasare all situated 50-150 km from the southern Mediterranean coast at altitudes between 1100-1500 m except one ata lower altitude.In this study two new Allecula species were found: Allecula janssoni Novák sp. nov. and Allecula turcica Nováksp. nov. The species are presently described, illustrated and keyed with all the western Palaearctic species. Bothspecies are probably saproxylic as the other species in the genus and for larval development, they use rotten woodin the trunk cavities.
