Abstract: The first record of the presence of the invasive Asian tiger mosquito Aedes albopictus in the province of Cordoba is presented. Adults, larvae, pupae and exuviae have been located at different points of housing estates in the northeastern part of the city. One possible origin is the coast around Malaga, much frequented by the citizens of Cordoba. Its detection has been possible due to the programme of monitoring, surveillance and control of hematophagous Dipterans, initiated in 2016 by our research group (Terrestrial Ecology, RNM232) in collaboration with the Sanitation Public Company of Cordoba (SADECO).
