Abstract
In this paper we provide information on the distribution and biology of Lampyroidea dispar (Fairmaire, 1857), based on males collected in Bulgaria. After its description, little research was conducted on this species. Here, for the first time, we provide habitus and aedeagus photographs. For comparison we also provide a photo of the aedeagus of Luciola mingrelica (Ménétriés, 1832).
