This ar ti cle re ports and com ments on in ter est ing Dan ish Micro lepi - doptera col lected in 2012 and in cludes re mark able find ings from pre - vi ous years. The clas si fi ca tion and no men cla ture fol low the new Dan ish check list (Karsholt & Stadel Nielsen, 2013). Three spe cies are re ported as new to the Dan ish fauna: 1) Bryotropha basaltinella (Zeller, 1839) (Gelechiidae): one spec i men was caught in a light trap near Co pen ha gen; 2) Aethes triangulana (Treitschke, 1835) and 3) Pelochrista mollitana (Zeller, 1847) (Tortricidae): one spec i men of each were caught in light traps in Born holm. We more over trans fer Caloptilia azaleella (Brants, 1913) (Gra cil lariidae) from the ob ser va tion list to the main list of Dan ish Lepidoptera. The to tal num ber of Dan ish Gracillariidae is now 88, Gelechiidae 178 and of Tortricidae 389. This re sults in a to tal of 1587 spe cies of Microlepidoptera found in Den mark. The to tal amount of Macro - lepidoptera re corded from Den mark is now 969, bring ing the num ber of Dan ish Lepidoptera to a to tal of 2556 species. With the new Dan ish check list the so-called ob ser va tion list has been ex tended to in clude both spe cies of un cer tain faunistic sta tus in Den - mark and spe cies of un cer tain tax o nomic sta tus. There are 13 spe cies of Lepidoptera on the for mer and 11 spe cies on the latter.
