A single specimen of Banasa euchlora was listed for Iowa by Osborn (1892) without definite locality. Stoner ( 1920), in the only definitive work on the Iowa Pentatomoidea, lists the species as known within the state boundaries only by the early Osborn record. The species has remained known from Iowa only by this early record to the present time. The writer is now able to confirm the presence of this species as a part of the Iowa fauna. A specimen in the Iowa State College insect collection bears the label, Shenandoah, Iowa, July 15, 1931, REG. Recently a second specimen, taken at Ames, August 2, 1947 has been received through the kindness of the collector Mr. J. L. Laffoon. This specimen is deposited in the personal collection of the author.
