Belonochilus numenius (say, 1832) (Heteroptera: Lygaeidae), a new invasive species in Croatia.

Abstract

In the present paper we report first observations of the invasive sycamore seed bug, Belonochilus numenius (Say, 1832) in Croatia. So far, we recorded the species in five localities in Croatia, one in Zagreb, two in Split and two in and around Dubrovnik. All the records originate from the urban areas with Plane trees on which the species feeds.
