Pandava laminata is an exotic representative of the family Titanoecidae, which has been recently introduced into Europe. Authors discuss the occurrence of P. laminata in Poland and Europe, as well as pathways of its spreading. The observations indicate that P. laminata is an expansive species and it may be present in many European countries. This species spreads by ornamental plants transporting (mainly orchids), and it established several populations in greenhouses in the Netherlands and Poland.
