From 2004 onwards, the African monarch (Danaus chrysippus (Linnaeus, 1758)) has been recorded in the Neretva river delta, southern Croatia. Aside from the observation of several specimens, nothing about its biology, reproduction or status there has been known so far. All the previous specimens were recorded at the end of summer, while in spring and...

In the present paper we report first observations of the invasive sycamore seed bug, Belonochilus numenius (Say, 1832) in Croatia. So far, we recorded the species in five localities in Croatia, one in Zagreb, two in Split and two in and around Dubrovnik. All the records originate from the urban areas with Plane trees on which the species feeds.

Nowadays, online social media provide rich insight into natural history and the distribution of many living beings. Based on citizen records uploaded to Facebook, we confirm the presence of the shield bug Solenosthedium bilunatum (Lefèbvre, 1827) in Croatia. S. bilunatum is a remarkable Mediterranean scutellerid within the subfamily Elvisurinae, wi...

Data for 12 moth species for the first time recorded in Bosnia & Herzegovina are presented. Most of the species can be characterized as common in the region and were probably overlooked during the limited historical surveys of the country. Some species, like Eriogaster rimicola and Pachycnemia tibiaria are probably scarcer and limited to the Sub-Me...

We analysed the status and distribution of the Sage Skipper Muschampia proto (Ochsenheimer, 1808), a rather rare and local Hesperiidae species at the edge of its range in the north-western part of the Balkan peninsula, mainly Croatia and Bosnia & Herzegovina. In order to determine the species’ presence in the region, we mapped the occurrence of its...

The members of the genus Milesia are large, wasp-mimic, saproxylic hoverflies. In Europe, only two species occur: Milesia crabroniformis and M. semiluctifera, but their distribution is still not sufficiently known, especially in eastern Europe. In the Balkans, Serbia is the country with the best-studied hoverfly fauna, while most of the other count...

Some giant mantid species of the genera Sphodromantis Stål, 1871 and Hierodula Burmeister, 1838 have been found spreading their distribution through the Palearctic, but none of the species have been recorded from the Adriatic coast of Croatia, where numerous local species already co-exist, such as Mantis religiosa (Linnaeus, 1758) and Iris oratoria...

New records of Hyles vespertilio (Esper, 1780) are reported from Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia. In Croatia, a single specimen was recorded on Mt. Biokovo, within the Biokovo Nature Park, southern Croatia. This is the first record in the country in 44 years. In Bosnia and Herzegovina, the species was recorded at 11 localities within or...

Hoverflies (Syrphidae) are a large Dipteran family, distributed almost worldwide. They play very important ecological roles such as plant pollination, nutrient recycling and predation of plant pests. The members of the genus Epistrophe Walker, 1852 are medium-sized hoverflies of which about 75 species have been described in the World, and 12 of the...

New observations of lattice brown, Kirinia roxelana (Cramer, 1777) in southern Croatia are presented. The species has been recorded at 11 new localities across the mainland part of Dubrovnik-Neretva County. As the species inhabits mostly rural areas, more targeted surveys in such habitats are needed to provide additional records. The specificity of...

A sample of total 350 specimens of the stargazer Uranoscopus scaber collected from the southern Adriatic during 2011 were biometrically analysed. Total lenght of females (N = 182) ranged from 12.33 to 30.8 cm (19.20 ± 3.42 cm) and males (N = 168) from 10.34 to 27.5 cm (17.66 ± 3.66 cm). Sexual dimorphism was observed in eleven morphometric and four...

The caterpillars of the Southern Swallowtail, Papilio alexanor have been recorded in the vicinity of Trebinje, Bosnia & Herzegovina. This is the first recent observation of this species in the country and the third observation so far. Opopanax chironium is confirmed as the larval host plant in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which was expected due to the r...

In order to study the morphometric and meristic characteristics of longspine snipefish, Macroramphosus scolopax population from southern Adriatic Sea, a total number of 350 specimens (including 208 females and 142 males), were trawled at depths between 300 to 400 m. Total body length ranged from 8.22 to 15.44 cm and body weight from 3.45 to 20.77 g...
