    Herophydrus musicus (Klug, 1834) is the only species of the genus Herophydrus (Sharp, 1882) occurring on the European mainland and is districted to a few countries in the south. Here the first records of Croatia, Bulgaria and the Greek island of Peloponnese are presented. These new distribution records expand the known range of the species in Europe northwards. A map of its distribution in the Palearctic region and the north of Africa is given and the biogeographical history of the species in Europe is discussed.
