The alien invasive ladybird Harmonia axyridis (Pallas, 1773) (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) was recorded from Tanzania, Zanzibar for the first time in 2014. This is in total the sixth country of this species in Africa and the second close to the equator. We suggest that repeated introductions may lead to new outbreaks of the species.
