Notes to the literature data. The record of Ectobia albicincta   from Eleni peak, Rila Mts., 2000 m ( Frey-Gessner 1893), also mentioned in the publication of Nedelkov (1908), later determined as Ectobius lapponicus   morpha erythronota   by Buresch & Peschev (1957), probably refers to Ectobius balcani   considering the distribution and biology of these species.

Ramme (1923) synonymised Ectobia lapponica subsp. nigra (Vitosha Mt.)   , with Ectobius lapponicus balcani   , which was later considered a valid species by Ramme (1951).

The material from Aliboutoush Mt. reported by Drenowski (1936) as E. lapponica   and part of the material from Kresna gorge reported by Drenski (1939) as E. laponica   refers to Ectobius balcani   considering the distribution and biology of these species.

Distribution in Bulgaria ( Fig. 72 View FIGURE 72 ). The species inhabits varied semi-dry to humid habitats from the lowlands to 2300 m alt. but is mainly found in the subalpine and alpine belts. It does not seem to occur to the north of the Stara Planina Mountains. Around the lower limit of distribution it keeps on diverse vegetation (grass-shrub, low vegetation and leaf litter).

Studied material. 1215 specimens (909 adults, 306 nymphs) and 10 oothecae.

General distribution. The distribution range of E. balcani   covers the Balkan Peninsula ( Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Albania, R Macedonia, Greece), northwards reaching Austria and Hungary, and in the east extending up to the Fore-Caucasus.
