Zelus renardii (Hemiptera: Heteroptera: Reduviidae): first records from Croatia, Montenegro, and an accidental introduction to the Czech Republic

Kment, Petr; van der Heyden, Torsten

Based on the collected specimen and available photographs, we provide first records of the invasive assassin bug species Zelus (Diplodacus) renardii Kolenati, 1857 from Croatia and Montenegro. We also report a case of accidental introduction of a larva of Z. renardii to the Czech Republic. These records document further spreading of this species native in America in Mediterranean Europe and possible ways of its spreading to the new areas.
