Eleven species of Nepticulidae are recorded from the Netherlands for the first time. Eight of these have been collected as larvae during recent field work: Ectoedemia hannoverella (Glitz), E. mediofasciella (Haworth), E. spinosella (Joannis), E. arcuatella (Herrich- Schaffer), Trifurcula cryptella (Stainton), Stigmella aeneofasciella (Herrich-Schaffer). S. poterii (Stainton), and S. crataegella Klimesch. On the basis of old collection material E. longicaudella Klimesch, E. bradfordi Emmet and S. svenssoni (Johansson) can be added to the list. A single specimen of E. bradfordi appears to be only the second one known. Some notes on rare species are given. S. regiella (Frey) is recorded for the first time from Belgium.
