The parasitoid-host association between Orgyia antiqua (Linnaeus) (Lepidoptera: Lymantriidae) and Carcelia atricosta Herting (Diptera: Tachinidae) is recorded here for the first time in Italy. A single caterpillar of O. antiqua was collected in Northern Italy (Arzergrande, Padua, Veneto Region) in June 2015. After the specimen died, a single tachinid larva emerged and pupariated. The emerged parasitoid was identified using DNA barcoding, with DNA extracted from the tachinid pupa. This is the first distributional record of C. atricosta in Northern Italy and the second for Italy, only two other specimens having being recorded previously (Abruzzo Region, Central Italy).
