Abstract

The alien North American species of lace bugs Corythucha ciliata (Say, 1932) (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Tingidae) new to the fauna of Uzbekistan was found on the sycamore trees in the botanical garden in Tashkent in April 2017. Survey of the plants revealed a small number of the imagines on nearly all of the 20 observed trees. Presumably, the species has successfully naturalized in the surveyed area and formed a stable population.
