Atheta strandiella is recorded in four localities in northern Poland including two Baltic raised bogs, another record comes from the south of the country, from a montane bog. The occurrence of A. strandiella in Poland is not surprising, as the species was already recorded from neighboring countries, including Belarus, Czechia, and Germany. Numerous findings of A. strandiella in different mires of Poland, including the Baltic and montane raised bogs, show our limited and insufficient knowledge of beetles inhabiting these endangered habitats.
