The first records from North Carolina, the southeasternmost for the United States, are given for five unintentionally introduced Palearctic heteropterans: the berytid Berytinus minor (Herrich-Schaeffer); the mirids Megalocoleus molliculus (Fallén), Orthocephalus coriaceus (F.), and Phoenicocoris dissimilis (Reuter); and the tingid Dictyla echii (Schrank). The bugs were collected at mid to high elevations (circa 825-2000 m) in the southern Appalachians. Their North American distributions and host-plant associations are reviewed.
