Total of 198 specimens were collected from different plants, including Hibiscus  sp., N. ole- ander, Bougainvillea  sp., P. granatum  , O. europaea  , Phoenix canariensis  , Tamarix  sp. and A. donax  . It was collected in Caleta de Fuste (13.II.2017, 30.III.2017), Corralejo (30.IX.2016)  , Costa Calma (30.IX.2016, 12.II.2017, 13.III.2017, 22.III.2017, 27.III.2017, 04.VIII.2017, 09.VIII.2017)  , Grandtarajal (03.VIII.2017)  , La Lajita (12– 13.02.2017, 23.III.2017, 06.VIII.2017)  , La Pared (30.09.2016, 05.VIII.2017, 07.VIII.2017, 12.VIII.2017)  , Morro Jable (24.III.2017)  , Pajara (12.VIII.2017)  , Tarajalejo (24.III.2017)  and Vega de Rio Palmas (25.III.2017)  .

Distribution. New to Fuerteventura. Reported from western islands of the Canary archipelago ( Eizaguirre 2007), specifically El Hierro, La Gomera, La Palma and Gran Canaria ( Oromí & Báez 2010; Nicolas 2010). Species widely distributed in the Mediterranean and Middle Eastern regions ( Kovář 2007). Recorded also in Pakistan (Gilgit-Baltistan) ( Ashfaque et al. 2015), India ( Poorani & Lalitha 2018) and Nepal ( Bielawski 1972). Erroneously reported from Kashmir ( Pakistan) by Rashid et al. (2017). Male genitalia illustrated by the authors clearly differ from those in specimens from Fuerteventura as well as India depicted by Poorani & Lalitha (2018).
