Dermaptera fauna of Turkey and Cyprus were evaluated on the basis of recently collected specimens, revisions of museum and private collections and data from the literature. New data are reported on the occurrence of 18 species from Turkey and three species from Cyprus. The total number of species known from Turkey is 19 and from Cyprus is six. Isolaboides kosswigi (Burr, 1947) is the only endemic species in the Turkish dermapteran fauna. The first precise records of Isolabella graeca Verhoeff, 1901 and Forficula lucasi Dohrn, 1865 from Turkey are presented and the occurrence of Anechura zubovskii (Semenov, 1901) is confirmed by recent records. Forficula auricularia Linnaeus, 1758 is recorded from Cyprus for the first time. A key to the Dermaptera species of Turkey and Cyprus is also provided.
