The bug Rhaphigaster nebulosa in the Netherlands (Heteroptera: Pentatomidae) Five specimens of Rhaphigaster nebulosa (Poda, 1761) were captured overwintering in or near the same house in Herkenbosch, province of Limburg, in different years between 1997 and 2002. These records fit similar observations of a recent range extension of this species in north-western direction in both Belgium and Germany. Data on its biology and distribution are summarised from the literature.
