Abstract

During two excursions to Israel and Jordan done by G. Müller and the author in 1998 and 1999, material of forester moths (Zygaenidae, Procridinae) was collected. The determination of these specimens and the examination of their specifically important genitalia by K. Efetov presents first proofs for the occurence of Jordanita (Roccia) hector (Jordan, 1907) in Israel and Jordanito (Jordanita) syriaca (Alberti, 1937) and Adscita (Adscita) obscura obscura (Zeller, 1847) in northern Jordan. The latter species is also recorded as common for the Palestinian region (Ramallah and its environs).
