Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Grynocharis quadrilineata (Melsheimer) and Tenebroides corticalis (Melsheimer) of the family Trogossitidae are newly recorded for New Brunswick, Canada. Additional records of the recently reported Calitys scabra (Thunberg)and Ostoma fraterna (Randall) are presented for the province. The record of Ostoma fraterna is the first recent record of this species from New Brunswick. Additional New Brunswick records of the thaneroclerine, Zenodosus sanguineus (Say), are given, indicting that this species is common and widespread in the province. One species of Cleridae, Cymatodera bicolor (Say),is newly reported from New Brunswick, and the adventive Thanasimus formicarius Linnaeus is newly recorded from Nova Scotia and the Maritime provinces. Attalus morulus (LeConte) and Dolichosoma foveicolle (Kirby), family Melyridae, are reported for the first time for New Brunswick and the Maritime provinces. Collection, habitat data, and distribution maps are presented for these species.

Introduction

This paper treats new [taxon-name: Coleoptera] records from New Brunswick, Canada in the families [taxon-name: Cleridae], [taxon-name: Melyridae], and [taxon-name: Trogossitidae]. The fauna of these families from New Brunswick and the Maritime provinces (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island) was recently treated by Majka (2005) ([taxon-name: Melyridae]), Majka (2006) ([taxon-name: Cleridae]), and Majka (2011)([taxon-name: Trogossitidae]). Intensive collecting in New Brunswick by the first author since 2003 and records more recently obtained from by-catch samples during a study to develop improved lures for the detection of invasive species of [taxon-name: Cerambycidae] have yielded additional new provincial records in the above families. The purpose of this paper is to report on these new records. In addition, we report a new Nova Scotia and Maritime provinces record for an exotic clerid species. A brief synopsis of each family is included in the results below.


Methods and conventions

The following records are based on specimens collected during a general survey by the first author to document the [taxon-name: Coleoptera] fauna of New Brunswick and from by-catch samples obtained during a study to develop a general attractant for [taxon-name: Cerambycidae]. Additional provincial records were obtained from specimens contained in the collection belonging to Natural Resources Canada, Canadian Forest Service - Atlantic Forestry Centre, Fredericton, New Brunswick.

Collection methods

Most specimens reported in this paper were collected from Lindgren 12-funnel trap samples during a study to develop a general attractant for the detection of invasive species of [taxon-name: Cerambycidae]. These traps may visually mimic tree trunks and are often effective for sampling species of [taxon-name: Coleoptera] that live in microhabitats associated with standing trees (Lindgren 1983). See Webster et al. (in press) for details of the methods used to deploy Lindgren funnel traps and for sample collection. A description of the habitat was recorded for all specimens collected during this survey. Locality and habitat data are presented exactly as on labels for each record. This information, as well as additional collecting notes, is summarized and discussed in collection and habitat data section for each species.

Distribution

Distribution maps, created using ArcMap and ArcGIS, are presented for each species in New Brunswick, and known distribution in Canada and Alaska is listed for each. New records for New Brunswick are indicated in bold in the Distribution section. The following abbreviations are used in the text:

Results
Species accounts

All records below are species newly recorded for New Brunswick, Canada, unless noted otherwise. Species followed by ** are newly recorded from the Maritime provinces of Canada.

The classification of the [taxon-name: Cleridae] follows Optitz (2010); that of the [taxon-name: Trogossitidae] and [taxon-name: Melyridae] follows Bouchard et al. (2011).

Family [taxon-name: Trogossitidae] Latreille, 1802

Leschen (2002) presented an overview of the North American representatives of the family [taxon-name: Trogossitidae] (the bark-gnawing beetles). Most species of [taxon-name: Trogossitinae] are predators and occur under bark or in galleries of wood-boring beetles. A few are minor stored-product pests (Leschen 2002). Larval and adult [taxon-name: Peltinae] species, such as [taxon-name: Calitys] and [taxon-name: Thymalus marginicollis] Chevrolat, feed on various fruiting bodies of [taxon-name: Polyporaceae] (Barron 1996). Bousquet (1991) reported two species of [taxon-name: Trogossitidae] as occurring in New Brunswick: [taxon-name: Ostoma septentrionalis] (Randall) (as [taxon-name: Ostoma columbiana] Casey, see Barron 1996) and the adventive [taxon-name: Tenebroides mauritanicus] (Linnaeus). In a review of the [taxon-name: Trogossitidae] of Atlantic Canada, Majka (2011) added [taxon-name: Ostoma fraterna] (Randall), [taxon-name: Thymalus marginicollis], and [taxon-name: Calitys scabra] (Thunberg) to the faunal list of the province. Here, we report two additional species from the province and additional locality data for [taxon-name: Ostoma fraterna], [taxon-name: Thymalus marginicollis], and [taxon-name: Calitys scabra] (Table 1).

Collection and habitat data.

In New Brunswick, [taxon-name: Grynocharis quadrilineata]was found in mature and old hardwood forests with sugar maple ([taxon-name: Acer saccharum] Marsh.) and American beech ([taxon-name: Fagus grandifolia] Ehrh.), an old-growth northern hardwood forest with sugar maple and yellow birch ([taxon-name: Betula alleghaniensis] Britt.), an old red oak ([taxon-name: Quercus rubra] L.) forest, a mature (110-year-old) red spruce ([taxon-name: Picea rubens] Sarg.) forest, and an old (180-year-old) red pine ([taxon-name: Pinus resinosa] Ait.) forest. Adults were captured in Lindgren funnel traps in most of these forest types. Specimens with microhabitat data were collected from [taxon-name: Pleurotus] mushrooms on a dead, standing poplar ([taxon-name: Populus] sp.), from under bark of a dead, standing American beech, from under bark of a standing, dead sugar maple, and from under bark of a red oak. This species has been reported from under bark of a dead poplar (Barron 1971). Adults were collected during April, May, June, and July in New Brunswick.

Distribution in Canada and Alaska.

MB, ON, QC, NB, NS (Bousquet 1991; Majka 2011). This species was first reported from Nova Scotia and the Maritime provinces by Majka (2011) based on one specimen and was considered regionally rare. This species appears to be widespread in New Brunswick and was commonly detected using Lindgren funnel traps.

Collection and habitat data.

[taxon-name: Tenebroides corticalis] was captured in Lindgren funnel traps deployed in both deciduous and coniferous forests in New Brunswick. These included a mature hardwood forest with sugar maple, American beech, and white ash ([taxon-name: Fraxinus americana] L.), an old red oak forest, a mixed forest, and a mature red spruce forest. Adults were also collected from moss and lichens on a tree trunk, in litter and sphagnum at the base of a tree in a [taxon-name: Carex] marsh, and in flood debris on the upper margin of a river. Barron (1971) reported this species from under bark of various hardwood species, spruce, and pine. Adults were collected during April, May, June, and July in New Brunswick.

Distribution in Canada and Alaska.

AK, YK, NT, BC, SK, MB, ON, QC, NB, NS (Bousquet 1991; Majka 2011). Majka (2011) newly recorded this species from the Maritime provinces on the basis of two records from Nova Scotia.

Family [taxon-name: Cleridae] Latreille, 1802

The [taxon-name: Cleridae] (the checkered beetles) prey on other insects as larvae and adults (Opitz 2002). Some species of [taxon-name: Enoclerus] and [taxon-name: Thanasimus] are important control agents of bark beetles and other wood-boring species. Clerids occur under bark, in tunnels of wood and cone borers, on logs and branches, on foliage, and on flowers (Opitz 2002). The [taxon-name: Cleridae] of the Maritime provinces was reviewed by Majka (2006). Fourteen species were reported for New Brunswick, including [taxon-name: Trichodes nutalli] (Kirby) and [taxon-name: Necrobia violocea] (Linnaeus), which were newly recorded for the province (Majka 2006). Here, [taxon-name: Cymatodera bicolor] (Say)is newly recorded from New Brunswick and [taxon-name: Thanasimus formicarius] Linnaeus is newly reported from Nova Scotia (Table 1).

Subfamily [taxon-name: Thaneroclerinae] Chapin, 1924

Kolibáč (1992) separated the [taxon-name: Thaneroclerinae] from the [taxon-name: Cleridae], but this was not followed by Opitz (2002). Later, Optiz (2010) proved conclusively that the [taxon-name: Thaneroclerinae] is part of the [taxon-name: Cleridae]. [taxon-name: Zenodosus sanguineus] (Say) is the only member of this subfamily in Canada (McNamara 1991) and the Maritime provinces (Majka 2006).

Collection and habitat data.

In New Brunswick, this species was captured in Lindgren funnel traps deployed in various deciduous and coniferous forest types. These included a mature hardwood forest, an old red oak forest, an old silver maple ([taxon-name: Acer saccharinum] L.) forest, an old-growth northern hardwood forest, a mature mixed forest, an old red pine forest, a mature red spruce forest, an old-growth eastern white cedar forest, and an old-growth white spruce ([taxon-name: Picea glauca] (Moench) Voss) and balsam fir ([taxon-name: Abies balsamea] (L.) Mill.) forest. Adults with micro-habitat data were collected from decaying fleshy polypore fungi and a partially dried polypore fungus on dead, standing trees, in a decayed log covered with gilled mushrooms and polypore fungi, on a slightly dried [taxon-name: Pleurotus] sp. on a sugar maple, in a polypore fungi on a [taxon-name: Populu]s log, under bark of a dead, standing American beech tree, and under bark of a spruce and a red oak log. Adults were collected during April, May, June, August, and September.

Distribution in Canada and Alaska.

ON, QC, NB, NS, PE (McNamara 1991; Majka 2006). Majka (2006) reported this species for the first time from New Brunswick on the basis of one specimen from Fredericton (York Co.) collected in 1987. This species is common and widespread in the province based on these collections.

Collection and habitat data.

One specimen from New Brunswick was captured in an ultraviolet light trap in a mixed forest area. Others were captured in Lindgren funnel traps deployed in the canopy of red oaks in an old red oak forest and in the canopy of a silver maple in a silver maple forest. Adults were captured during June, July, and August.

Distribution in Canada and Alaska.

ON, QC, NB, NS (McNamara 1991). Only one previous specimen of this species was known from the Maritime provinces (Kings Co., Kentville, specimen in CNC) (Majka 2006). Majka (2006) considered this specimen was either from an isolated population in Annapolis Valley of Nova Scotia or a wind-blown stray.

Collection and habitat data.

In Europe, [taxon-name: Thanasimus formicarius] is a well-known predator of bark beetles (Weslien and Regnander 1992). Two adults from Nova Scotia were captured in Lindgren funnel traps baited with tree blend lure (spruce volatiles) and EtOH deployed in a red spruce stand. Adults were collected during July and August.

Distribution in Canada and Alaska.

QC, NS. This old-world species was introduced into North America to control the bark beetle, [taxon-name: Dendroctonus frontalis] Zimmermann in 1892 and in the late 1900s (Opitz 2002). It is not known if this species is established in Nova Scotia or if these specimens represents an interception of individuals that may have emerged from softwood packing material used as dunnage in shipping containers arriving in the port of Halifax from Europe. No additional specimens have been collected at or near this site despite extensive trapping from 2001–2011 in the Halifax–Dartmouth area with similarly baited funnel traps or black-panel intercept traps (Alpha Scents, Portland, OR). There is also a specimen in the Ouellet-Robert Collection (Université de Montréal) from Berthierville, Quebec, collected by A. Robert in the 1940s during his studies on Dutch elm disease (Serge Laplante, personal communication). There have been no additional specimens reported from Quebec.

Family [taxon-name: Melyridae] Leach, 1815

Mayor (2002) presented an overview of the [taxon-name: Melyridae] (the soft-winged flower beetles) of North America. Adult [taxon-name: Melyridae] feed on both plant and animal matter, such as small arthropods, and especially on pollen and nectar. Larvae are predators and scavengers, and feed on detritus, fungi, and small arthropods, including their larvae and eggs (Mayor 2002). In Canada, most species occur only in the West and only the introduced [taxon-name: Malachius aeneus] (Linnaeus) was recorded from Maritime provinces and New Brunswick (Bright 1991). Majka (2005) reviewed the [taxon-name: Melyridae] of the Maritime provinces and newly reported [taxon-name: Collops vittatus] (Say) and [taxon-name: Nodopus flavilabris] (Say) (as [taxon-name: Anthocomus flavilabris] (Say)) from New Brunswick. Here, we report [taxon-name: Attalus morulus] (LeConte) and [taxon-name: Dolichosoma foveicolle] (Kirby) for the first time for New Brunswick and the Maritime provinces (Table 1).
