The snail-killing fly Salticella fasciata was discovered in Belgium in 2010. Since then, several new localities on the Belgian coast were discovered and in 2014, the first record for the Netherlands was found. This is the first representative of the genus and also of the subfamily Salticellinae in the Netherlands. In this paper, records from Belgium and the Netherlands are reviewed and information on biology and habitats is summarised.
