Detailed coverage of invasive species threatening livelihoods and the environment worldwide

Abstract

Does India have the invasive brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys (Stål).

Abstract

Halyomorpha halys, an invasive species and member of Pentatomidae (Hemiptera: Heteroptera), has gained importance during recent years due to its rapidly expanding geographical distribution outside its native range, East Asia. This paper establishes that all published reports on the occurrence of H. halys in India are based on misidentification and H. halys does not occur in India.
