ABSTRACT: In this preliminary study hostplants relationships of Lygaeoidea species of Turkey are listed, discussed and summarised. The hostplants of Lygaeoidea species are from various floristic elements of Turkey. According to various families of the superfamily Lygaeoidea studies done between the years 1922-2020, a total of 222 plant taxa in 36 families have been identified as hostplants. 77 of these taxa are given at genus level and 145 of them at species level. These hostplants are shrubs, trees, and herbaceous vegetations. In this part of the study, lygaeoid species found on 36 host plant families of Turkey are listed alphabetically. The remaining plant families will be given in the second part of the study. The relationships between these species and the hostplants are discussed in this research review.
