Material studied (total: 2 males, 7 females, 1 juvenile).

CROATIA: 2 males, 7 females, 1 juvenile, Metković, Dukat, Vištičina Jama Pit, 24 September 2014, R. Ozimec & G. Polić leg. ( CNHMAbout CNHM). 

Distribution. Croatia: (present study, see above); Macedonia: Šar Planina Mts., Ljuboten (type locality) ( Attems 1929; Makarov et al. 2004), Makedonski Brod, Ovčarska Peštera Cave ( Ćurčić et al. 2003; Makarov et al. 2004), Skopje, Matka, Propast Srt (pothole) ( Vagalinski et al. 2015); Serbia: Šar Planina Mts., Cviljen (type locality) ( Attems 1929; Strasser 1971; Antić et al. 2013; Makarov et al. 2004), Šar Planina Mts., Kačanik (type locality) ( Attems 1929; Antić et al. 2013; Makarov et al. 2004), Šar Planina Mts., Ljuboten (type locality) ( Attems 1929; Strasser 1971; Antić et al. 2013; Makarov et al. 2004), Ćuprija, Monastery Ravanica, Milkina Pećina Cave ( Strasser 1962; Antić et al. 2013; Makarov et al. 2004). This species has a quite disjunct distribution in eastern and southern Serbia, northern and southwestern Macedonia, and the southernmost part of Croatia. Discovery of T. albanicus  in one cave near Dubrovnik, Croatia ( Fig. 19 View Figure , yellow circle) represents the first record of this species in the Dinaric region, as well as a new species for the Croatian fauna.

Notes. Typhloiulus albanicus  is known both from caves and from forest leaf litter.
