The invasive gelechiid moth, potato tuberworm Phthorimaea operculella (Zeller, 1873) was first recorded in Hungary (Komló, Baranya County) and Northern Croatia (Lug, Osijek-Baranja County) in December 2015. This quarantine species has not been reported from Hungary so far and it was known in Croatia only from the coastal region. The occurrence of Ph. operculella in the Carpathian basin is of great concern as this invader is able to cause negative impacts on the Hungarian potato cultivation. This occurrence of the species is one of the northernmost data in Europe so far.
