Abstract

To date, 66 species of Ptiliidae representing 16 genera are recorded from Poland. In this paper, we present data on four species as new country records for Poland: Actidium variolatum Flach, 1887; Microptilium palustre Kuntzen, 1914; Ptinella britannica Matthews, 1858; and Ptinella microscopica (Gillmeister, 1845). All specimens representing these species were collected in Kampinos National Park, central Poland, in deciduous forests (oak-hornbeam and alder). Actidiumvariolatum and M. palustre are hygrophilous. Ptinella microscopica is a saproxylic species that feeds on decaying wood, and P. britannica occurs in mole nests.
