Following research into amphipod fauna in the central Black Sea region of Turkey, forty-two species of benthic amphipod were recorded. Of these, Ampelisca pseudospinimana. Gammarellus angulosus, Hyale crassipes. Leptocheirus pilosus. Orchestia mediterranea and Orchestia stephenseni are reported from the Turkist Black Sea for the first time, and Microdeutopus versiculatus and Nannonyx propinquus are new records for Turkish waters. With this study, the number of amphipod species known from the Turkish Black Sea coast has increased from fifty-seven to sixty-five.
