On track to becoming a cosmopolitan invasive species: First record of the box tree moth Cydalima perspectalis (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) in the African continent.

Haddad, K., Kalaentzis, K., & Demetriou, J. (2020). On track to becoming a cosmopolitan invasive species: First record of the box tree moth Cydalima perspectalis (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) in the African continent. ENTOMOLOGIA HELLENICA, 29(2), 27-32.

ABSTRACT
Native to Eastern Asia, the box tree moth Cydalima perspectalis (Walker, 1859) has managed to
establish itself, and gradually expand its distribution, across Europe, Asia and recently America.
This publication documents the first known record of the invasive species in Africa. The moth
was observed in Constantine, Algeria in 2018 and was later identified as C. perspectalis. Possible
scenarios of its introduction on the continent, as well as potential ecological implications, are
discussed.
KEY WORDS: Lepidoptera, Crambidae, Cydalima, invasive species, first record, Africa.

As part of a study to identify new species, an expedition was organised from the 21st to the 31st of December 2019 in the extreme south of the Algerian Sahara. The authors reported the presence of Deudorix livia (Klug, 1834) (Lepidoptera: Lycaеnidae). This is the first observation of this species in Southern Algeria.
