Though Monacha cartusiana (O. F. Müll.) is known to expand its distribution range through accidental introductions, the migration routes are usually unknown. The story of an individual which covered adistance of about 1,500 km from the Crimea to Poland, attached to a car, is one of the few examples of a fully documented migration pathway.
