Fifteen taxa belonging to nine genera (Arcyptera, Ramburiellla, Dociostaurus, Notostaurus, Omocestus, Stenobothrus, Euchorthippus, Pseudochorthippus and Chorthippus) of Gomphocerinae (Orthoptera: Acrididae) were sampled during field trips throughout the different ranges of Turkish Thrace between the years of 2010 and 2015. Bioacoustic parameters of these 15 species have been described for the first time from Turkish Thrace with this study. A total of 5 taxa (Arcyptera (Pararcyptera) microptera microptera, Omocestus (Dirshius) petraeus, Stenobothrus eurasius eurasius, Euchorthippus declivus and C. (Glyptobothrus) biguttulus euhedickei) were identified in the Turkish Thrace region as new records. In addition to these, Stenobothrus eurasius eurasius has been given a new record for Turkey.
