In April 2018, the presence of Pityophthorus micrographus (Linnaeus, 1758) was recorded at the lumber yard, in the town of Spišská Nová Ves. It was collected from a pheromone trap, lured with ethanol. This is the first record of P. micrographus in Slovakia. There is a possibility of its longer presence in Slovakia since it had been confirmed previously in most of the countries neighbouring Slovakia.
