Leptoglossus occidentalis Heidemann, 1910 (Hemiptera: Coreidae) in Worcester city
David M. Green
One sunny spring day 8 April 2015, on a visit to Worcester City Art Gallery and Museum, Foregate Street, one of the museum curators, Garston Philips, pointed out to me a Heteropteran bug that looked of interest on the pavement of Foregate Street, between the museum & the railway station. This was Leptoglossus occidentalis Heidemann, 1910 (Hemiptera: Coreidae) - Western Conifer Seed Bug - a Nearctic leaf-footed pine bug - that has recently arrived in the UK. In Worcestershire there are few records, but it has been previously mentioned in this journal (Green 2014; Holder 2011).
