During March-April 2001, a survey of pentatomids associated with soybean [Glycine max (L.) Merrill] was conducted at northeastern Brazil (Balsas County - Maranhao State - latitude 7[degree]31'S, longitude 46[degree]02'W). The majority of the phytophagous bugs (82.4%) belonged to the species Euschistus heros (F.). Other six species of bugs were collected in much lower numbers ([<]5.0%). Among them, the exotic species, Nezara viridula (L.), was intercepted in this area for the first time, expanding its distribution in the Neotropical Region.
