Four species of the genus Smicronyx Schoenherr (Coleoptera: Curculionidae) were examined in this study with Smicronyx albosquamosus Wollaston, S. coecus Reich, and S. syriacus Faust reported for the first time in Turkey. Given that S. jungermanniae Wollaston, S. reichii (Gyllenhal), S. sordidus LeConte, and S. fulvus LeConte were previously reported from Turkey, there are now seven species of Smicronyx in the insect fauna of Turkey. Specimens of S. albosquamosus, S. coecus, S. syriacus, and S. jungermanniae were collected from almond trees, Amygdalus communis L., in Eastern Southern Anatolia Region of Turkey and subjected to taxonomic study using primarily genitalia and reproductive structures to provide descriptions of these species with comparisons with previous studies.
