Dolycoris baccarum (Linnaeus, 1758)

For quite some time, this species was confused with Carpocoris fuscispinus. During the mid to late 1800's, and even into the early 1900's, many authors referred to this species as verbasci; many of the citations to baccarum by these same authors probably refer to Carpocoris fuscispinus. The record from Canary Islands needs to be confirmed (Remane & Kammerschen, 1991).
