First Record of the European Rusted Flea Beetle, Neocrepidodera ferruginea (Scopoli, 1763), in North America (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae: Galerucinae: Alticini)
Laurent LeSage,Karine Savard
Psyche , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/387564
Abstract: The European rusted flea beetle Neocrepidodera ferruginea (Scopoli, 1763) is reported for the first time from Québec and Ontario, Canada. It was likely introduced into southern Ontario at an international port on the Great Lakes in early 1970s, or possibly earlier in the 1960s. However, the exact location and date of introduction could not be precisely determined. The flea beetle has since dispersed northeastwards and reached Aylmer, north of Ottawa River, in Québec, by 2003. This is about 375 km from Niagara Falls, where the oldest known specimens were collected in 1977. In 2009, various wild habitats and cultivated areas of Aylmer were surveyed. The host plants of the larvae could not be determined, but adults were swept from many plant species including various weeds and cultivated grasses: Alopecurus pratense (meadow foxtail), Dactylis glomerata (orchard-grass), Festuca rubra (red fescue-grass), and Poa pratensis (Kentucky blue-grass). Adults were also collected from flowers of several weeds: Aster sp. (undetermined species), Aster novae-angliae (New England aster), Ambrosia artemisiifolia (small ragweed), Echium vulgare (viper’s bugloss), Nasturtium officinale (water cress), Melilotus alba (white sweet-clover), Hypericum perforatum (common St. John’s-wort), Lythrum salicaria (purple loosestrife), Ranunculus acris (buttercup), and Solidago spp. (goldenrods). Since larvae are known to develop inside the roots and central stems of cereals, this new alien species represents a threat to Canadian agriculture, particularly if it reaches the Prairies in western Canada, where cereals represent a considerable part of their economy. European rusted flea beetle and Altise ferrugineuse européenne are suggested for the English and French common names of this flea beetle, respectively.
First record of the genus Schistoglossa Kraatz from Canada with descriptions of seven new species (Coleoptera, Staphylinidae, Aleocharinae)
Jan Klimaszewski,Reginald Webster,Karine Savard
ZooKeys , 2009, DOI: 10.3897/zookeys.22.153
Abstract: The following seven new aleocharine species of the genus Schistoglossa Kraatz are described from Canada and the United States (New Hampshire): S. brunswickensis Klimaszewski & Webster, sp. n.; S. charlottae Klimaszewski, sp. n.; S. campbelli Klimaszewski sp. n.; S. carexiana Klimaszewski, sp. n.; S. hampshirensis Klimaszewski, sp. n.; S. pseudocampbelli Klimaszewski & Webster sp. n.; and S. sphagnorum Klimaszewski & Webster, sp. n. All are illustrated by digital images of the entire body and the genital structures and compared with western Palaearctic species. Data on bionomics and distribution are provided. A checklist of Nearctic species and a key to Canadian species of the genus are presented. Boreophilia blatchleyi (Bernhauer & Scheerpeltz, 1926) is transferred to the genus Schistoglossa, and the previously unknown female is illustrated. One new subgenus is erected, Schistoglossa (Boreomorpha), to accommodate some species of the genus.
First record of adventive species Micromus variegatus (Fabricius) from eastern Canada (Neuroptera, Hemerobiidae)
Jan Klimaszewski,Laurent LeSage,Karine Savard
ZooKeys , 2009, DOI: 10.3897/zookeys.27.220
Abstract: An adventive Palaearctic species, Micromus variegatus (Fabricius) (Neuroptera, Hemerobiidae), is reported as new to Québec, eastern Canada. It was recorded for the first time from North America in 1988, from Galiano Island, of the coast of southwestern British Columbia. The present records confirm the occurrence of this species in eastern Canada, which constitutes the second known introduction of M. variegatus into North America.

ZooKeys , 2009, DOI: 10.3897/zookeys.22.177
Abstract: The second survey in 2008 of rove beetle species from Stanley Park, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada is presented. Fifty-one species were found from the following subfamilies: Aleocharinae (18), Micropeplinae (1), Omaliinae (11), Osoriinae (1), Oxytelinae (2), Paederinae (1), Proteininae (2), Pselaphinae (3), Steninae (1), Staphylininae (8), and Tachyporinae (3). All species are listed in Tables 1 and 2. Thirty-five species were previously recorded from the storm-undamaged sites in 2007, including 16 species that were site-specific. Fifty-one species are reported from the storm-damaged sites, including 31 species that are sitespecific. There are 19 species in common between storm-damaged and undamaged sites. Sixty-seven species of rove beetles are now known from all the sites studied in Stanley Park. One new species, Sonoma squamishorum Chandler & Klimaszewski, sp. n., is described and illustrated. Proteinus collaris Hatch is recorded from Canada and British Columbia for the first time. Four adventive aleocharine species are recorded.
