The pseudoscorpion Chernes similis (Beier, 1932) is reported from the Baltic region for the first time. The new record from Lithuania is based on a single male specimen found in a mould growing in a hollow of a Tilia L. tree in the Botanical Garden of Vilnius University. This finding represents the northernmost record of C. similis. With the new record of C. similis, nine pseudoscorpion species, belonging to six genera and three families, are currently known from Lithuania.
