The occurrence of the brown marmorated stink bug, Halyomorpha halys (Stål, 1855), in Sicily is here recorded for the first time. The species, native of Eastern Asia, has been introduced in North America and Europe, and found in northern Italy in 2012. In Sicily, the insect was detected in two different part of Palermo town, in the neighborhood of the maritime port and near the Botanical Garden. Detection of H. halys in Sicily was expected, due to the high spread rate shown in the different areas in which it was introduced.
