A new species of Aspidiotes Schoenherr, 1847 (Curculionidae: Tanymecini) from Turkey is described and illustrated. Aspidiotes (Phaenognathus) candani sp. nov. is closely related to A. anatolicus (Colonnelli) but can be separated by eye shape, form of pronotum, form of setae on disc of elytra, surface morphology of scales, structure of aedeagus (in dorsal view) and form of spermatheca.
