Until now, the known range of Branchipus intermedius Orghidan, 1947 was restricted to eastern Romania and the Bistra Mountain in western Macedonia. This paper reports the first record of this species from Serbia, i.e., in the area of the Stara Planina Mountains, which represents a new, southeasternmost distribution limit of B. intermedius in the Balkans.

The morphology of B. intermedius is briefly discussed, and it is here described for the first time on the basis of SEM observations. The present distribution, the presumed origin, and dispersal patterns of the species are discussed as well. Jusqu'à présent, l'aire de distribution de Branchipus intermedius Orghidan, 1947, était réduite à la partie est de la Roumanie et à la montagne Bistra dans l'ouest de la Macédoine. Ce papier rapporte le premier signalement de cette espèce en Serbie, c'est-a-dire, dans la zone des montagnes Stara Planina, qui représentent la nouvelle limite sud-est de la distribution de B. intermedius dans les Balkans.

La morphologie de B. intermedius est brièvement discutée et décrite pour la première fois sur la base d'observations en SEM. La distribution actuelle, l'origine probable, et le schéma de dispersion de cette espèce sont aussi discutés
