Abstract

In this paper we provide a list of new species records of Trichoptera collected during the 2009–2010 period in the Republic of Kosovo. We report six first records for the Kosovo caddisfly fauna: Tinodes braueri McLachlan, 1978, Hydropsyche modesta Navas, 1925, Plectrocnemia mojkovacensis Malicky, 1982, Annitella triloba Marinković-Gospodnetić, 1955, Synagapetus moselyi (Ulmer, 1938) and Stenophylax meridiorientalis Malicky, 1982. We also provide new distribution records for several other species belonging to: Rhyacophilidae, Glossosomatidae, Philopotamidae, Hydropsychidae, Polycentropodidae, Psychomyiidae, Limnephilidae, Goeridae, Lepidostomatdiae, Leptoceridae, Odontoceridae, Sericostomatidae and Beraeidae. For the first time in more than 40 years, a rare Balkan endemic species Limnephilus petri Marinković-Gospodnetić, 1966 is recorded again from Kosovo. The present record of Odontocerum albicorne reconfirms its presence in southeastern Europe; it was previously considered absent.
