On the presence of the alien exotic sap beetle Phenolia (lasiodites) picta (macleay, 1825) (coleoptera nitidulidae) in Italy.
The exotic sap beetle Phenolia (Lasiodites) picta (W.S. Macleay, 1825) (Coleoptera Nitidulidae) is an alien species recently recorded in Europe (Spain, France, and Greece), and Turkey. For Italy, only a single record of P. cf. picta is reported from Sicily. In this paper, we studied this specimen confirming the presence of P. picta in Italy.
