Abstract

Smith and Goulet (2000) gave the first North American records of Monsoma pulveratum (Retzius) from Newfoundland, Canada, in 1991 and 1998 and compared it with the only native species of the genus, M. inferentia (Norton). It is native to Europe, northern Africa, and Turkey to the Caucasus (Benson 1968, Lacourt 1975).
