Detailed coverage of invasive species threatening livelihoods and the environment worldwide

Abstract

First or rare records of Heteroptera species in Slovenia.

Abstract

Four species are recorded for Slovenia for the first time: Xylocoris galactinus (Fieber), Pachytomella passerinii (A. Costa), Lygaeus creticus Lucas and Picromerus conformis (Herrich-Schaeffer). Heterocordylus erythropthalmus (Hahn) was recorded earlier, but is absent from national checklists. Monosteira unicostata (Mulsant & Rey) is found in Slovenia for the first time without doubt as the record for Virovitica refers to Croatia. Halyomorpha halys (Stål) is an invasive alien species, already established in Nova Gorica. One species, Phytocoris hirsutulus Flor, is omitted from the list of Slovenian Heteroptera due to misidentification.
