It was suggested by several authors that hypothetical primordial black holes (PBHs) may contribute to the dark matter (DM) in our Galaxy. There are strong constraints based on the Hawking evaporation that practically exclude PBHs with masses m pbh ~ 1015to1016 g and smaller as significant contributors to the Galactic DM. Similarly, PBHs with masses greater than about 1026 g are practically excluded by the gravitational lensing observation. The mass range between 1016 g
