Data are presented on the occurrence of 51 species of the family Eulophidae in Turkey based on material obtained mainly from grass and leaves with leaf miners. The paper combines the faunistic and distributional data obtained from recent studies with all other species of the family known from Turkey up to now. The recorded genera (with the number of recorded species) are: Aprostocetus Westwood (20), Baryscapus Förster (8), Cirrospilus Westwood (2), Diglyphus Walker (5), Hyssopus Girault (2), Euplectrus Westwood (1), Hemiptarsenus Westwood (3), Necremnus Thomson (3), Pnigalio Schrank (2), Pronotalia Gradwell (1) and Sympiesis Förster (4). Twenty-eight species are reported for the first time in the Turkish fauna.
