First records of Leptoglossus occidentalis Heidemann, 1910 (Heteroptera: Pentatomorpha: Coreidae) in the Czech Republic
Plant Protection Science 43 (4), 165-168
Abstract: In the autumn of 2006 and summer 2007 the coreid species Leptoglossus occidentalis Heidemann, 1910 was detected in the Czech Republic for the first time as a new alien insect species. It is native to North America, where it causes important seed losses on coniferous trees, especially pines. From Europe it is known since the end of the last century, when it was introduced to Italy. Its repeated finding could indicate a vital population of this species in the Czech Republic, not only introduced individuals.
