Abstract: Two plant bug species, Euryopicoris nitidus (Meyer-Dür, 1843) and Solenoxyphus lepidus (Puton, 1874), are reported for the first time for Bulgaria. Their habitats, host plants, and reasons for the late discovery in the country are briefly discussed. The genera Euryopicoris Reuter, 1875 and Solenoxyphus Reuter, 1875 have not been previously reported in Bulgaria as well.

Keywords: Balkans, Bulgaria, Halticini, new records, Orthotylinae, Phylinae, plant bugs
