World distribution. Originally from Europe, the species was introduced to North America, Australia, New Zealand and Chile.

Chilean distribution. From Metropolitan to Aysén region ( Fig. 70View FIGURE 70).

Altitudinal range. From inland valleys to precordillera ecosystems (100– 1,800 m.a.s.l.).

Biology and notes. Eumerus strigatus  is an exotic species considered a pest of onion and garlic crops. Later, the first record in Chile was reported in 1978 by Vockeroth with samples reared by SAG ( Gerding et al., 1999). The larva penetrates the bulbs, turning the tissue into a pulpy texture. Adults are considered important pollinators of hyacinth, potatoes, carrots, and strawberries.

Conservation status. Not evaluated because this species is considered exotic.
