Abstract: We report the occurrence of the Cat snake (Telescopus fallax) from the central parts of the Eastern Rhodopes (Madjarovo). The region was intensively herpetologically studied in the recent years but this species of snake was overlooked. Almost no data, beside a single juvenile specimen, is available in order to assess its local range and relative density. Although the new locality does not extend considerably the species range it has zoogeographic and conservation importance.
