In this paper, we refer to the finding of Pseudacrobasis tergestella in central Italy. This species was found in Europe and described for the first time from NE Italy; subsequently it was found in Eastern Asia and described again as P. nankingella. In Italy, only two specimens from the North and four specimens from the South were known. Now the species was also recorded in central Italy providing evidence of the continuity of its distribution in our country.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
