SALUSO, A; XAVIER, L; SILVA, FAC  e  PANIZZI, AR. An invasive pentatomid pest in Argentina: neotropical brown stink bug, Euschistus heros (F.) (Hemiptera: Pentatomidae). Neotrop. entomol. [online]. 2011, vol.40, n.6, pp. 704-705. ISSN 1519-566X.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1519-566X2011000600011.

This is the first record on the invasion of the Neotropical brown stink bug, Euschistus heros (F.) in Paraná County (latitude 31º 51' 9.6" S, longitude 60º 32' 11.2" W), Entre Ríos province, Argentina. Five adults were intercepted in 2009/2010, one in crop residues and four on soybean fields. The expanding range in the distribution of E. heros in the Southern Hemisphere is believed to be due to the increased commercial trade among countries, increase in the area cultivated with soybean, and the adoption of no-tillage cropping systems.
