Abstract

 The paper presents on the example of a red-listed caddisfly Erotesis baltica McLachlan, 1877 some issues important for insect biodiversity like: species distribution, preferences regarding the development habitats with some remarks on imprecise literature descriptions, threats and possibilities of protection as well as the problem with its status on the Red list and the potential role in being an umbrella species characteristic for vanishing lake littoral and fens in Poland.
