During field research in 2011 in Banat and Bačka only one male of Theophilea subcylindricollis Hladil, 1988 was found in a field northeast of Lake Palić. This is the third record of it in our country, with one of the two previous recorded sites destroyed by a building construction. This paper gives an overview of the factors threatening this strictly protected species in Serbia.
