Comments
From Malumphy (2014): 2 live adults were observed in 2010 in London associated with passenger luggage (flown from USA). Intercepted again in 2013 on a consignment of stone from China.

From Cianferoni et al. (2019): 1 adult specimen was photographed in in a zoo (Farnham, England) in April 2019. However, establishment remains to be confirmed.

From Powell et al. (2021): sentinel pheromone traps deployed in England and Wales caught no H. halys during 2018 and 2019, but two adult males (in Essex and London) were caught during August 2020. Not considered established.
