Plants in gardens and parks within Diyarbakir Province (Bağlar, Kayapınar, Sur, and Yenişehir) of Turkey were sampled throughout the years of 2016 and 2017. These collections yielded 10 species from the superfamily Coccoidea (Hemiptera: Coccomorpha) including 3 species from the family Coccidae (Parthenolecanium corni [Bouché], Didesmococcus unifasciatus [Archangelskaya], Sphaerolecanium prunastri [Boyer de Fonscolombe]), 5 species from the family Diaspididae (Leucaspis pusilla [Löw], Pseudaulacaspis pentagona [Targiona-Tozzetti], Mercetaspis halli [Green], Salicicola kermanensis [Lindinger], Parlatoria oleae [Colvée]), and 1 species each from family Eriococcidae (Gossyparia spuria [Modeer]) and family Pseudococcidae (Planococcus vovae [Nasonov]). The diaspids L. pusilla, Pseudaulacaspis pentagona, and Salicicola Kermanensis; the eriococcid G. spuria; and the pseudococcid Planococcus vovae represent the first records for the Diyarbakır Province insect fauna.
