Hermetia illucens ( Linnaeus, 1758)  

Published records. Sardinia ( Mason & Krivosheina 1995; Rozkošný 2004). Cagliari prov.: Cagliari, city; Elmas ( Mason 2005). Carbonia-Iglesias prov.: Isola di Sant’Antioco, Rio Trigo ( Mason 2005).

Remark. Numerous records from Italy were recently summarized by Mason (2005) and Adamo (2008).

Distribution. Almost cosmopolitan between 45°N and 40°S, apparently American in origin but spread by commerce ( Rozkošný 1983). In the Palaearctic it has been recorded from the Canary Islands, Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Malta, Croatia, Albania and Turkey, with northernmost localities in southern Switzerland ( Üstüner et al. 2003; Rozkošný 2004).
