Abstract: Bulgarian endemic species Pilemia serriventris (Holzschuh, 1984) is reported for the first time with exact data from several localities, including its type locality near Harmanli. The species is distributed in SE Bulgaria along river valleys from the Aegean and the Black Sea drainage basins, inhabiting both riverside and roadside habitats. The host plant of the species appears to be Anchusa procera Besser, and the earlier reports of host plants are doubtful.
