On invasion of an east asian seed beetle, Megabruchidius tonkineus (Pic) (Coleoptera, Bruchidae), developing in Gleditsia seeds, in the northwest Caucasus

Abstract

An East Asian bruchid, Megabruchidius tonkineus (Pic, 1914), which recently settled on Gleditsia triacanthos in Hungary, was recorded for the first time in Krasnodar in 2005 and was found in two examined localities in and near Krasnodar in November 2010. The species is likely to have become established in the Northwest Caucasus.
