Description In the course of a study on microannelids of spring fens and adjacent grasslands in the Western Carpathians (within Czechia and Slovakia), conducted in spring and autumn of 2015 and 2016, the two terrestrial, soil-dwelling polychaetes Parergodrilus heideri and Hrabeiella periglandulata were recorded for the first time in Slovakia at six sites and one site, respectively. The find of P. heideri in the eastern part of Slovakia represents the second eastern-most published record within its known European range (only a recent record from Estonia lies further in the east). Within Czechia, P. heideri (hitherto known from a single site in the north of Bohemia) was found at four sites and H. periglandulata at three sites, all in north-eastern Moravia close to the Polish and Slovak borders.
