Abstract

We confirm the occurrence of the Southern Green Stink Bug Nezara viridula (Linnaeus, 1758) (Pentatomidae: Pentatominae: Nezarini) in the Czech Republic. We provide additional data from Moravia and its first records from Bohemia, confirming its successful overwintering and breeding in the country conditions. Nezara viridula seems to be already established species in the Czech Republic.
