In this work carried out between the years 2014-2015, a total 9 specimens were collected from one locality in Kilis province. After the diagnose of specimens, they were determined that they belong to two species and two genera of two families. These species namely Prochora lycosiformis (O. P.-Cambridge, 1872) and Zelotes balcanicus Deltshev, 2006 are new record for Turkish spider fauna. The genus Prochora Simon, 1886 is new to turkish spider fauna, as well. Distribution of both species in the World has been given. Specimens are labelled and stored in my collection at Kilis 7 Aralik University.
