          Melittia cucurbitae (Harris, 1828) is a very important pest of squash and pumpkins. To date, this lepidopteran had its distribution reported for eastern United States, southeastern Canada, and Mexico. Our study reports for the first time the occurrence of squash vine borer, M. cucurbitae for South America, being the first record to Brazil, in southwest region of Pará state.
