Özet

Two new species belonging to the genus Rhinoppia of the family Oppiidae were described and illustrated based on adult specimens collected from Artvin province, Turkey. One of these species, Rhinoppia artvinensis n. sp., was found in litter and soil under plum trees (Prunus domestica), and the second species, Rhinoppia tasdemiri n. sp., was found in moss pads on the ground in a mixed forest (mostly Pinus sylvestris) and in the same place as for the previous new species.
