The S American Castniid moth Paysandisia archon (Burmeister, 1800), which was accidentally introduced to several S European localities, is now also being recorded for the first time from the Greek island of Páros. This record is the first ever published for Greece as a whole by a lepidopterological journal, all past  Greek records having been either in the form of announcements in the local press, or having been included in a doctorate thesis.
