* Pristiphora angulata LINDQVIST, 1974  

Brandenburg: 1 ♀, Landkreis Barnim, Eberswalde, Ammon Park , 52.832°N 13.816°E, 27.04.1989, leg. A. Taeger, det. M. Prous & A. Liston. GoogleMaps  

First record from Germany.

The recorded global distribution of Pristiphora angulata   comprises only Norway ( LØNNVE 2009), Finland (type locality: southern Finland), Estonia and northwest Russia ( TAEGER et al. 2006). Host plants are Spiraea species   , S. chamaedryfolia   being a main host ( LØNNVE 2009; A. Liston, personal observations). No Spiraea species   is native in Fennoscandia or Germany, and the geographic origin of the neozoon P. angulata   is unclear.
