Abstract

Data on Strepsiptera species in Estonia are presented for the first time. Four species from three families – Elenchus tenuicornis (Kirby, 1815), Halictophagus silwoodensis Waloff, 1981, Halictoxenos tumulorum Perkins, 1918 and Stylops melittae Kirby, 1802 – have been recorded. Collection data and colour photographs for each species are presented and their known distribution and biology briefly discussed. A key to species in Baltic countries and Fennoscandia is provided.
