Barstucke (Or Berstucke)

in Lithuanian mythology, was the name of certain middle beings between the subdeities and men goblins, or gnomes. The head among them was Puschkeit, governing the earth and plants. These goblins made their abode principally under elder-bushes, which were therefore sacred to them.
