The Turkish fauna of the genus Empis is poorly known, with only 45 species listed in the literature. Two new species, Empis (Polyblepharis) nabucco Ciftci sp. nov. and Empis (s. str.) doronicola Ciftci sp. nov. are described from mountains of central Turkey. Both sexes are described and compared with related species. Male genitalia, and also mid leg of Empis (s. str.) doronicola Ciftci sp. nov. are illustrated. Keys to Turkish species of Empis (s. str.) and E. (Polyblepharis) are given.
