Thanks to Richard G. Dearborn we were able to examine the collection of beetles of the Maine Forest Service, Department of Conservation, Augusta. Our attention was directed to two small (4-6 mm) cerambycids by their collector, Kimberly Foss. The specimens are cylindrical, black bodied with tan, black tipped, setose elytra and tan legs. One specimen had been taken sitting on a maple leaf at Portland, Maine, and the other was collected by sweeping at Augusta, Maine. Subsequently an additional two specimens were collected in our Malaise trap on the Dearborn property 10 mi. S. Mt. Vernon, Maine.
