SACKMANN, Paula; VILLACIDE, José Marka  and  CORLEY, Juan. Presence of a new exotic social wasp in Patagonia, Argentina. Rev. Soc. Entomol. Argent. [online]. 2003, vol.62, n.1-2, pp.72-73. ISSN 0373-5680.

We report the presence of the social wasp Polistes dominulus (Christ) (Hymenoptera: Vespidae) in El Bolsón (Rko Negro). This is the first record of the species in Argentina. All specimens were found in a garden within an urban area. The species is of Paleartic origin, but has been established in Chile for at least 20 years.

Keywords : Polistes dominulus; Patagonia; Invasions.
