The present paper includes an updated list of the decapod crustaceans collected during the surveys performed on the Turkish coast. A total of 244 species was reported (88 Natantia, 17 Macrura Reprantia, 37 Anomura, 102 Brachyura), an increase of 9.84% over the number published by Kocatas & Katagan (2003). Zoogeographic remarks regarding the species are briefly discussed. The Mediterranean caridean shrimp, Processa acutirostris Nouvel and Holthuis, 1957 recently collected from the Turkish Mediterranean coast is a new record for the Turkish Seas. The following nomenclature is also up to date based on the Marine Species (Worms, 2008)
