This study s carried out because the marmorated stink bug (Halyomorpha halys) appeared in the south of Russia a few years ago and is actively expanding its habitat. The repertoire of vibration signals of marmorated stink bug from the population in Sochi, Krasnodar region of Russia was studied. It was found that the repertoire of songs partially differed from the repertoire described for populations of this species from other regions. We recorded two types of songs: the signal of males emitted in the presence of a female, and the “tremulation” before copulation. Therefore, these vibration signals registered from the marmorated stink bug from the population of the south Russia were further studied.wa
