Coptosoma (Laporte,1832) (Heteroptera: Plataspidae) species of Turkey were studied and their morphological characters were reviewed. The species of Coptosoma living in Turkey are: C. maurum seidenstuckeri Davidova-Vilimova and Stys, 1980, C. oenderi n.sp., C. putoni Montandon, 1898, C. costale Stal, 1876, C. mucronatum Seidenstucker, 1963, C. scutellatum (Geoffroy), 1785), C. lodosi n.sp. Two Indian species, C. indicum (Distant 1892) and C. noualhieri Montandon 1896 were described in new concepts. The variations on some characters between specimens from Turkey and the other sides were discussed and the new species, C. oenderi and C. lodosi, were described and their diagnostic characters were illustrated. ]]>
