Abstract

Sinoxylon anale Lesne, 1897 and S. unidentatum (Fabricius, 1801) (Coleoptera, Bostrichidae), two almost cosmopolitan species most likely native of the Oriental Region, are recorded for the first time from Greece on the basis of several specimens intercepted in a consignment at the Piraeus harbor (Attica, Athens) in wood packaging material originating from China. The establishment of these species in Greece is briefly discussed, moreover, an updated list of their interceptions, countries of establishment and host plants, is provided.
