Abstract (2. Language): 
This study, performed in order to determine the dipteran species of forensic entomology importance at high temperatures, was carried out from 20 May to 12 September, 2008, and the obtained data belongs to Callihoridae and Sarcophagidae families including the important insect species of Diptera. Pig carrions and bovine viscera were put in iron cages in Balkan Campus of Trakya University to monitor and identify the dipteran species attracted. Observations and sampling were performed twice a day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. Collected specimens were identified and Calliphora vicina, C. vomitoria, Chrysomya albiceps, Lucilia coeruleiviridis, L. cuprina, L. sericata and Pollenia angustigena from Calliphoridae and Sarcophaga africa from Sarcophagidae were determined. L. coeruleiviridis, L. cuprina and P. angustigena are first records for Turkish Diptera fauna.
