Parasetodes respersellus (Rambur, 1842) is the only representative of its genus in Europe. So far, it has been reported in 6 countries (24 sites), and 3 of the reports come from the 1960s and from earlier historical references. Between 24 and 28 August 2011 a male and a female of this species were attracted to a light trap in the Courish Spit (Russia). The paper presents the following topics concerning this species: the distribution area and the status of existing records in particular countries, considerations about the potential breeding site of the collected specimens, remarks on the origins of a reliable picture of male genitalia, and a comparison between the obtained Russian male and the modern description of this species in the literature.
