This study aimed to identify soft scale insect species in five provinces (Ağrı, Bitlis, Hakkari, Iğdır and Van) in Eastern Anatolia. Species of the family Coccidae were collected from natural and cultivated plants between 2005 and 2008. In total, 31 species in 17 genera were found, including fifteen new species records for the Turkish scale insect fauna, namely: Didesmococcus unifasciatus, Eulecanium caraganae, Eulecanium ficiphilum, Lecanopsis subterranea, Lecanopsis taurica, Pulvinaria tremulae, Rhizopulvinaria armeniaca, Rhizopulvinaria dianthi, Rhizopulvinaria grandicula, Rhizopulvinaria hissarica, Rhizopulvinaria megriensis, Rhizopulvinaria turkmenica, Rhizopulvinaria variabilis, Rhodococcus turanicus and Vittacoccus longicornis .
