An emergence trap for woodpile insects, assembled in the coppice holm oak forest of San Gregorio (SE-Sardinia), captured few specimens of only two species of Neuropterida, but these were very interesting ones: Isoscelipteron glaserellum (U. Aspöck, H. Aspöck et Hölzel, 1979) (Neuroptera Berothidae), new to Italy, and Dendroleon pantherinus (Fabricius, 1787) (Neuroptera Myrmeleontidae), new to Sardinia. Further specimens of both species were collected at the same site using other methods. An old find of Dendroleon pantherinus, previously considered unreliable, was confirmed. The ecology and rarity of both species are discussed.
