Urophora hani n. sp. associated with Centaurea babylonica (L.) in Turkey (type locality: Hatay, skenderun, Çerçikaya) is described and illustrated. It resembles U. congrua (Loew), U. cardui (Linnaeus), U. variabilis Loew, and U. neuenschwanderi Freidberg in having the subbasal crossband extending to the posterior margin of the wing and the aculeus with one pair of steps, but readily differs from the former by the whitish microtrichose mesonotum (shining in U. neuenschwanderi), and from the latter by the discal and preapical crossbands widely divergent at the posterior margin, and from both by the tip of aculeus pointed (truncated in U. congrua, U. cardui and U. neuenschwanderi); the new species also differs from all other Palaearctic species of Urophora by the dark crossbands fused at anterior margin along R2 3 vein almost to level R4 5
