A new species of the genus Chelonus Panzer, 1806, C. beyarslani sp. n., is described and illustrated from Western Anatolia (Turkey). It is morphologically similar to Chelonus oculator (F., 1775), from which it differs mainly in the characteristics of antennomeres, first flagellomere, propodeum, propodeal tubercle and mesosoma.
