Abstract

This study provides data on the first known established populations of two allochthonous species in Romania, Mustha spinosula and Perillus bioculatus. Overwintering, host plants and distribution of these two pentatomids (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) are briefly discussed. We also provide information on color variation in nymphs of Mustha spinosula and report a new host plant for this species.
