Abstract

The paper presents the results of winter end early spring 2023 studies conducted at 174 locations in 100 10×10 km UTM squares within nine zoogeographical regions of southern and eastern Poland: the Eastern Beskids Mts., the Western Beskids Mts., the Sandomierz Lowland, the Roztocze, the Kraków-Wieluń Upland, the Lublin Upland, the Lesser Poland Upland, the Upper Silesia and the Holly Cross Mts. testing the use of the London planes for overwintering of true-bugs. Insects were sampled from the bark of trunks. As the result 15 species of Heteroptera were recorded, including three invasive species that can considerably affect plane trees: Arocatus longiceps, Corythucha ciliata and Oxycarenus lavaterae.
