Based on the material collected by the authors in the Crimea (Karadag Nature Reserve), Acalyptris platani (Müller-Rutz, 1934) is recorded in Eastern Europe (Ukraine) for the first time. It represents the easternmost record of this Sub-mediterranean nepticulid species in Europe, once again confirming faunal links of southern Crimea with Mediterranean region. Adults, male and female genitalia, and leafmines of A. platani are illustrated and provided together with a distribution map.
