[en] The 'bathroom fly' Clogmia albipunctata (Williston, 1893) (Diptera: Psychodidae)
is a cosmopolitan species that is commonly found in bathrooms, kitchens, sewage treatment
plants and compost heaps. Of circumtropical origin, the species probably spread to synanthropic
habitats in northern and central Europe during the past decades. The first documented findings in
Belgium are discussed, together with general information on the biology and recognition of the
species.
