The poorly known assassin bug Reduvius (Pseudoreduvius) dicki Carayon, 1987 (Heteroptera: Reduviidae: Reduviinae), known so far only from Libya, is recorded here for the first time from Tunisia. In addition, the Tunisian record of Reduvius testaceus (Herrich-Schaeffer, 1845) was found to actually represent misidentification of R. dicki and R. testaceus is excluded from the list of the Tunisian fauna. The reduviid fauna of Tunisia currently comprises 56 species.
