Abstract. In the south of Eastern Siberia, the widespread desert bug Brachynema germarii (Kolenati, 1846) from the family Pentatomidae was found. The species was collected at light in the Trans-Baikal Territory in the Daurian State Nature Reserve not far from the border with Mongolia and in a building in the south of the Krasnoyarsk Territory, where it was probably brought from the Tyva Republic.
