Notes to the literature data. Buresch & Peschev (1957) recorded Ectobius sylvestris   for the first time for Bulgaria based on specimens identified by Drenski (1939) as Ectobia laponica   [sic]. In agreement with the latter and based on studied material present in NMNH part of the remaining records of E. laponica   [sic] by Drenski (1939) (Eastern Rhodope and Rila Mts. ) are herewith referred to E. sylvestris   .  

Distribution in Bulgaria ( Fig. 75 View FIGURE 75 ): The species occurs in the subalpine and alpine belts of Stara Planina, Rila, Pirin and Rhodope Mts. An isolated locality is reported from the Black Sea coast ( Buresch & Peschev 1957). Usually inhabits deciduous forests with high-grass and low-shrub meso- and xerothermic communities between 400 to1600 m as well as open karstic habitats up to 2000 m, found in leaf litter or on top of low trees and shrubs.

Studied material. 53 specimens (37 adults, 16 nymphs) and 2 oothecae.

General distribution. The species is widespread from Western Europe to eastern Scandinavia and southeastern Europe reaching Asia Minor. The species is introduced to the east coast of North America.
