New distribution records for two species of Cryptolestes Ganglbauer (Coleoptera: Laemophloeidae)
Date of this Version
Suction traps being used to monitor aphid populations in Florida have produced specimens of two exotic species of Cryptolestes, suggesting both species are newly established in the “wild” in the United States. Examination of other collections has produced other new country records for one of the species. Specimens representing the Florida records are in the Florida State Collection of Arthropods; other specimens are in the collection of Rudolf Schuh, Vienna, Austria.
