Abstract

This paper is a continuation of a series of publications on the distribution of true bugs in Poland and includes new faunistic data for 306 species of true bugs. In total, data on 62 species previously unreported in 21 zoogeographical regions of Poland is presented, including some rarely collected: Brachyarthrum limitatum, Eurydema fieberi, Peritrechus gracilicornis, Stephanitis pyri, Tingis crispata. It is also noteworthy that this paper was largely prepared using citizen science, where many people (non-specialists in Heteroptera) collected data constituting almost 25% of the presented records. Importantly, the true bugs recorded in this way include species very rarely collected in Poland, and species alien to Polish fauna (e.g. Oxycarenus lavaterae, Nezara viridula and Halyomorpha halys). Due to the lack of funding being a significant obstacle to biodiversity studies in Poland, citizen science seems to be the only way to effectively monitor all the dynamic changes taking place in national entomofauna.
