The distribution of the species of Zygaenidae within mainland Portugal is reviewed and updated, and distribution maps (10x10 km, UTM squares) are presented. The Portuguese continental fauna includes fourteen species belonging to the genera Adscita Retzius, 1783, Jordanita Verity, 1946, Aglaope Latreille, 1809, and Zygaena Fabricius, 1775. Evidence is presented indicating that the Portuguese records of Zygaena lonicerae (Scheven, 1777) can be attributed to missidintifications.
