This article represents the first published checklist of Pyraloidea in Croatia, including a total of 363 species; 201 Crambidae and 162 Pyralidae. This represents about 43% of the European pyraloid fauna. The checklist is based on historic documents and recent publications, examination of specimens from museum collections in Croatia and unpublished results from private field investigation. It provides references to the publication and/or collection, sorted from the first records in the past until present day. The categories included in this list are families, subfamilies, genera, tribes and species. The current species name is followed by synonyms under which it was published in the past, sometimes including the categories subspecies, varieties and forms. In addition to this, several interesting species and their status are discussed. Furthermore, the distribution of all listed species is given according to the three biogeographical zones of Croatia. This is followed by an analysis of occurrence in the biogeographical zones and a comparison of the exploration level of other European coutries from the region.
