Ectoedemia (Etainia) obtusa (Puplesis & Diškus), described from Turkmenistan, is for the first time recorded from Europe: Spain, France, Italy and Croatia. It has been reared from cocoons, partly found on trunks of Fraxinus ornus L., which is considered to be its probable host. The female is described here for the first time and the male redescribed and illustrated. A checklist and key of the seven Western Palaearctic species of the subgenus are provided.
