Specimens of the feather-legged fly, trichopoda pennipes (fabricius, 1781), were detected in gy, Perly and Monniaz (canton of geneva, Switzerland), parasitizing adults of nezara viridula (l.). this is the first record of this nearctic species in Switzerland north of the alps, and one of the first records in temperate europe. t. pennipes could have a potential to control the population of n. viridula, a pest that causes increasing damages in various crops and is known to be the principal host of this tachinid fly.
