Notes. Harmonia quadripunctata   was originally described from Denmark ( PONTOPPIDAN 1763). It is native to the Palearctic Region, distributed especially in Europe and eastern Asia – Russia, China, and Korea ( BIELAWSKI 1963, 1980; VANDENBERG 1990; PANG et al. 2004; KOVÁŘ 2007). However, there aresome reports of thisspecies from other countries of the Palearctic Regionincluding Syria ( KHALIL & MOURAD 2006), Israel ( HALPERIN et al. 1995), Lebanon and Turkey ( GÜNTHER 1958, BIELAWSKI 1963). Harmonia quadripunctata   was introduced into the USA and reported there since 1924 ( VANDENBERG 1990). In southern America, introduced populations have only been reported from Argentina and Chile so far ( GONZÁLEZ 2006).

The earliest record of H. quadripunctata   in Turkey was provided by GÜNTHER (1958). Since then, many studies reported H. quadripunctata   in 22 of Turkey’s 81 provinces: Ankara ( GÜNTHER 1958, UYGUN 1981, ÜLGENTÜRK & TOROS 2000), Kayseri ( GÜNTHER 1958), Konya ( GÜNTHER 1958, ŞAHBAZ & UYSAL 2006), Adana, Afyon, Bursa, Denizli ( UYGUN 1981), Isparta ( UYGUN, 1981, ASLAN & KARACA 2005, KARACA et al. 2006, KAYA BAŞAR & YAŞAR 2011, OĞUZOĞLU 2017), Amasya, Samsun, Tokat ( KILIÇ & AYKAÇ 1989), Erzurum ( ÖZBEK & ÇETIN 1991), İzmir, Manisa ( TEZCAN & UYGUN 2003), Kahramanmaraş ( ASLAN & UYGUN 2005), Balıkesir ( VURAL VARLI et al. 2013), Artvin ( PORTAKALDALI & SATAR 2010), Çanakkale ( BAŞTUĞ & KASAP 2015), Bartın ( TOPER KAYGIN & SOBUTAY KAPTAN 2017), Yozgat ( TIFTIKÇI 2017), Düzce ( ÖZTEMIZ & YAYLA 2018), and Bilecik (this study).

In Iran, H. quadripunctata   was first reportedfrom North Khorasan Province in 2013 ( BIRANVAND et al. 2017). It was subsequently reported from Mazandaran Province, in northern Iran ( PAHLAVAN YALI et al. 2017). Here, wepresent the first report from Semnan Province.
