In 2018 a population of Pseudomogoplistes vicentae was found in Asturias, northern Spain. This is the first record of the Spanish mainland. It was not surprising as the species is present in Portugal and France. This small cricket is characteristic of rocky beaches and can probably be found at much more localities on the Spanish coast.
