Monoxia obesula Blake 

MALLORCA—Palma: Es Carnatge, 10.2015, 15 exx. on bushes of Atriplex halimus  L. ( Chenopodiaceae  ). This is an invading species of North American origin which had been previously quoted from Sardinia ( Clark et al. 2014) and Malta very recently ( Mifsud 2016). 

Our citation is the third Palaearctic record of this species. The event has probably occurred by trade of ornamental plants.
