    Blasticotoma filiceti is reported here for the first time in Belgium. It was observed in Willerzie (province Namur) and Hamont-Achel (province Limburg). B. filiceti is an exceptional sawfly feedingon ferns with a striking foam production at the larval stage. We discuss the species’ distribution outside Belgium, morphology, habitat, life cycle and ecology. Finally, we try to grasp the meaning of this finding from a larger perspective about the ecology and distribution of this sawfly species.
