First report of Dryadaula caucasica (Zagulajev, 1970) from Central Europe and records of further rare tineids (Lepidoptera: Tineidae) in Białowieża Primeval Forest
Dryadaula caucasica (Zagulajev, 1970) (Lepidoptera: Tineidae: Dryadaulinae) is recorded for the first time in Central Europe. Two specimens were collected in Białowieża Forest, NE Poland, by rearing from the sporocarp of bracket fungus and by intercepting the adult moth with the use of a barrier trap. This record of D. caucasica from Poland is the fourth known locality of this species, and is situated more than 1700 km the nearest other known location. Characteristics of the species' habitat, notes on its biology, and a distribution map are presented. New records of Agnathosia mendicella (Denis & Schiffermüller, 1775), Montescardia tessulatellus (Zeller, 1846) and Triaxomera fulvimitrella (Sodoffsky, 1830) from Białowieża Forest are also given.
