ABSTRACT: In this study the first record of the Deraeocoris flavilinea (A. Costa, 1862) (Miridae: Deraeocorinae) in the Anatolian peninsula (Central Anatolia, Turkey) is given. With this new record, the distribution area has expanded to the East. The records of Turkey demonstrate definitively that it is an alien species for a great part of Europe and the Near East.
