Abstract: Following a review of all the available Iberian material belonging to the genus Ferdinandea Rondani, 1844, results show that the fauna of the Iberian Peninsula have all the four species recorded in the Palaearctic region: F aurea Rondani 1844, F. cuprea (Scopoli, 1763), F. fumipennis Kassebeer, 1999, and F ruficornis (Fabricius, 1775). Examined material of F. ruficornis represents the first record from the Iberian Peninsula. A revised key to the Iberian Ferdinandea species is provided, as well as updated distribution maps for each of the species. Breeding sites for F. aurea and F. ruficornis are reported, in the case of F aurea as the first known (in Quercus faginea and Quercus pyrenaica), and in the case of F. ruficornis as the first in Q. pyrenaica. Special attention should be paid to the conservation of F. ruficornis, highly restricted in its Iberian range and threatened with extinction in different European countries.
