The northern limit of the range of Pupoides coenopictus in NW. Africa has been extended to include the northern edge of the Sahara. A distributional survey of the Magreb region showed that this species formerly occurred in regions of S. Morocco and N. Algeria. This paper describes the range of Pupoides coenopictus in NW. Africa, discusses systematic status and taxonomic problems and comments on possible factors limiting the range.
