Abstract: The species of Oopristus Steffan, 1968 (Hymenoptera: Torymidae: Toryminae: Monodontomerini) of Turkey were studied. Oopristus turkestanicus (Skriptshinsky, 1929) was reared from the eggs of Apodiphus amygdali (Germar, 1817) (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae) in Balcalı, Adana, as a new record for Turkey. Additionally, 2 new species of the genus, O. tayfursokmeni Tarla and Doğanlar, sp. nov., and O. erganicus Tarla and Doğanlar, sp. nov., were described. The species were also reared from eggs of A. amygdali collected in Antakya, Hatay province, and Ergani, Diyarbakır province, respectively. The diagnostic characters of the species were illustrated and an identification key to species of the genus was provided.
