Abstract: Zygaenid material collected from 25 localities in ten counties of Romania during 1967–2002 was examined. Fifteen species were found, of which Jordanita notata appears to reliably represent the only second population of the species in Romania, while the record of J. budensis seems to be the fifth locality for the country. We discuss several misidentifications of species published in previous publications and list their precise collection places and dates.

Keywords: faunistics, Procridinae, Romania, Zygaena
