Scythris clavella (Zeller, 1855) in Italy (Lepidoptera, Gelechioidea, Scythrididae)

Abstract

During an extensive collection of Lepidoptera in Reatini Mountains (Central Apennines, Italy) a male of Scythris clavella (Zeller, 1855) was collected. This species is distributed in Central and Southern Europe and eastwards to Bulgaria, Greece, Southern Ural Mountains, Altai Mountains and Central Asia (Kazakhstan, Kirgisia). It was cited for Italy; however, accurate data of its presence are not present in literature. Our data support the conclusion that it is the first record for Peninsular Italy.
