Abstract

The third capture of an Aprasia picturata increases its recorded geographical distribution in a northerly direction by approximately 250 km. This record may represent a new population or a range extension. If this record indicates a small disjunct population, and the species is already relatively rare, then there may be a case for affording it and its habitat special protection.
