The Central European species of the maculata-group of Phyllodromica are revised comprising six known species (Phyllodromica chladeki, P. harzi, P. hungarica, P. maculata, P. marani, and P. transylvanica) and three new species (P. latipennis from Slovakia and Hungary, P. halterisignata and P. variabilis from Romania). A short characterization of the group is given and all species are described and depicted with their main characteristics; the geographic distribution of the species is shown on several maps; determination keys allow the identifi cation of males and females. P. dobsiki has turned out to be a junior synonym of P. hungarica. Similarly, the name Blatta maculata Schreber, 1781, is most likely a junior synonym of Blatta schaefferi Goeze, 1778; the authors propose to consider schaefferi as a nomen dubium and to retain maculata as the valid name.
