The aim of this paper was to give information about Haemodipsus species occurring on hares in the Konya province. Thirty three lice specimens collected from forty hares (Lepus europaeus, L.) were examined; two species, Haemodipsus lyriocephalus (Burmeister, 1839) and H. setoni (Ewing, 1924) were identified. Information about and discussion of the morphological characteristics of these species is given in this paper. This is the first time that Haemodipsus lyriocephalus and H. setoni have been reported in Turkey.
