In this study, the fauna of Papilionoidea (Lepidoptera) (sensu van Nieukerken et al., 2011) in West Taurus (Southern Turkey) has been investigated. Field studies were carried out during the years 2004–2009. Specimens of butterflies were collected from 43 different localities for this study. These specimens belong to 125 species distributed in 5 families. The distribution of species (by families) was given as: Papilionidae (5); Pieridae (14); Nymphalidae (45); Lycaenidae (44) and Hesperiidae (17). A review of the relevant literature revealed that 92 of 125 species determined in this study are newly recorded for the Lepidoptera fauna of Anamur and all of them are new for the study area.
