There are only a few published records of this beetle in Serbia. Due to new findings, it was necessary to update the distribution of this species in Serbia. Recent field research revealed that the largest suitable habitat is the Deliblato Sands in the South Banat District, where this species is common. Other important areas are located near the Romanian border in the vicinity of the city of Vršac and near Mužlja (in the neighborhood of the city of Zrenjanin, Central Banat District), where the northernmost population in Serbia is located. In addition to this overview of distribution, we propose monitoring methodology for <em>C. hungaricus</em>. We believe that regular monitoring can bring the necessary attention to the disappearing steppe habitats and that the results can help to manage them appropriately in the future.</p> Sándor Bérces Gabor Mesaroš Nikola Vesović ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2023-03-06 2023-03-06 28 1 10.5281/zenodo.7691861 NEW RECORDS OF ACONTIA CANDEFACTA (HUBNER, 1831) (LEPIDOPTERA: NOCTUIDAE) FROM CROATIA, SLOVENIA AND BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA <p>In this paper, we present new records of <em>Acontia candefacta</em> in Croatia, Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. From the time of the first records in Croatia in 2019, the species has spread across much of the country and has also become very common in its northern regions. The first observations have been reported for Slovenia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. In Slovenia, the species has been recorded at two localities near the Croatian border, while in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the species has been recorded in two far-apart regions, indicating that it is more widespread in the country.</p> Toni Koren Dejan Kulijer ##submission.copyrightStatement## 2023-03-07 2023-03-07 28 1 10.5281/zenodo.7701110
