The presence of Pyrgus andromedae (Wallengren, 1853) (Hesperiidae) is confirmed for the Romanian Carpathians, where it occurs sympatrically with Pyrgus cacaliae (Rambur, 1839). The records presented here represent the second area of occurrence in the Carpathian chain. Male and female imagos are illustrated and the genitalia of both sexes are figured in comparison with P. cacaliae. The current and potential distribution, habitat preferences, and conservation status of P. andromedae are discussed.
