    Abstract

    Recent research (BERGSTEN et al., 2012) has shown that the former Suphrodytes dorsalis (Fabricius, 1787) actually contains two species. Re-examination of most Belgian material revealed that both species are present in Belgium. In this article, the distribution of Suphrodytes dorsalis (Fabricius, 1787) and Suphdrodytes figuratus (Gyllenhal, 1826) are mapped and discussed. Furthermore, the difference in habitat preference in Belgium is given.
