In this paper we present an unusual case of cocoons produced by larvae of Tenebrionid Alphasida (Glabrasida) puncticollis(Solier, 1836), which has been observed on the islet of Lampione (Sicilian Channel). Pupal cocoons have never been recorded forspecies belonging to this genus, and their occurrence results rarely documented within the family Tenebrionidae. Some ecological implications are discussed.
