The scope of this study is to make evaluations on faunistic, ecological and zoogeographical situation of the subfamily Paederinae (Coleoptera: Staphylinidae) in the Central Anatolian Region of Turkey. As a result of the study, 31 species belonging to 7 subtribes and 12 genera have been determined by field trips between years 2009-2011 in the Central Anatolian Region. Among them, one species, Rugilus longicollis (Fauvel,1900), is reported as new record for Turkish fauna. Also three species, Scopaeus minutoides Coiffait 1969, Rugilus tauricus (Rougemont,1988) and Tetartopeus adanensis Assing,2004, were endemic for Turkey. Ten species Lathrobium wrasei Schulke,1990, Astenus immaculatus Stephens,1833, Paederus mesopotamicus Eppelsheim,1889, Paederus riparius (Linnaeus, 1758), Rugilus angustatus (Geoffray,1785), Rugilus orbiculatus (Paykull,1789), Rugilus rufipes Germar,1836, Scopaeus bicolor Baudi Di Selve, 1848, Scopaeus minutoides Coiffait,1969 and Tetartopeus adanensis Assing,2004 are reported as the first records for Central Anatolian Region.
