A current checklist of Lepidoptera that utilize Robinia pseudoacacia as a hostplant in Slovakia (Central Europe) is provided. The inventory is based on a bibliographic review and new unreported data from southwest Slovakia. The list includes 35 Lepidoptera species belonging to 10 families. Most species are polyphagous and belong to Euro-Siberian faunal community. Two monophagous species, the leaf miners Macrosaccus robiniella and Parectopa robiniella, and the polyphagous pest Hyphantria cunea have subsequently been introduced to Slovakia.
