New records of the alien invasive species Harmonia axyridis (Pallas, 1773) in Italy (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae)



Abstract. We present the first records of the invasive alien species Harmonia axyridis from Aosta Valley, Umbria and Apulia. These observations are important because, outside its native range, the species exerts severe impacts on native biodiversity and human health. Early warnings are crucial to prevent its further spreading.
