Reduviidae adults and larvae Tenthredinidae family was collected on Rose spp in Diyarbakır province of Turkey in November and brought to the laboratory for rearing. The larvae were reared at the temperature of 26±1°C, relative humidity of 65±5, and illumination of 3500 lux for 16 hours per day. As a result of this study, Allantus (s.str.) viennensis belonging to Tenthredinidae family and Zelus (Diplodacus) renardii belonging to Reduviidae family were obtained. It was determined for the first time that Z. renardii, a polyphagous predator, fed on A. viennensis. In addition, Z. renardii is the first record for Diyarbakır insect fauna.
