Abstract

Albizia julibrissin Durazz and Cercis siliquastrum L. (Fabales: Fabaceae) are native to Turkey and used as ornamentals. We studied the seed beetles Bruchidius terrenus (Sharp) and B. siliquastri Delobel (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Bruchinae), which infest the seeds of A. julibrissin and C. siliquastrum, respectively, and their parasitoids. We recorded both bruchines from Turkey for the first time. We also found Dinarmus acutus (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae) as a parasitoid of both B. terrenus and B. siliquastri.
