The following species of Otiorhynchus Germar, 1822 are described: echinopterussp. n., rhizophilussp. n. and agilissp. n. from south-western Turkey (subgenus Eunihoides subgen. n.); brevipilosussp. n. from Turkey (subgenus Pocodalemes); nigrosetosussp. n., flavosetosussp. n., lacunosussp. n., adopertussp. n., implicatussp. n. and sculptipterussp. n. from Turkey (subgenus Tecutinus); forficulatussp. n. and amplicornissp. n. from south-western Turkey; crocotillussp. n. from Greece (subgenus Fondajenus); crassiphallicussp. n. from northern Turkey (subgenus Otismotilus); agmentosussp. n., armentalissp. n., cappadocicussp. n., crepuscularissp. n., hebetessp. n., malinkaisp. n., porculussp. n., vavraisp. n. and wanatisp. n.
