Here, we present the first record of Demicryptochironomus (Irmakia) neglectus Reiss, 1988 in Slovakia. Samples were taken using the Chironomid Pupal Exuviae Technique (CPET) from two reservoirs. Two pupal exuviae (out of the 500 ind. collected) were recorded in Kráľová reservoir and in one individual was found in Sĺňava reservoir (out of the total 514 ind. collected). Since the CPET method mostly allows species level identification of chironomids, its usage is helpful in discovering the real chironomid diversity of Slovakia. Moreover, it helps to define ecological requirements of species we have little information about, such as the present one.
