A record of Vulpicida tubulosus collected in 1985 in northern Poland, based on unpublished herbarium material, extends its geographic range. Based on a recent field study of the locality as well as recent and historical literature, the origin of this previous population is discussed, and notes on the distribution and ecology of the taxon in general are provided. Attempts to obtain molecular data from the specimen have failed, but the presence of contaminating fungi is discussed.
