dc.description.abstractWe report a new finding of the invasive land flatworm Obama nungara Carbayo et al., 2016 in a natural reserve of the oceanic island of São Miguel (Açores, Portugal) at 947 meters of altitude. This is the first record for this oceanic archipelago and the highest ever reported, representing the sixth island invaded by the species. O. nungara is a top predator of soil fauna, representing a new threat to the fauna of this isolated archipelago.en_IE
