Abstract/OtherAbstract:
We report 19 new species records for the faunal list of Coleoptera in New Brunswick, Canada, six of which are new records for the Maritime provinces, and one of which is new Canadian record. We also provide the first recent records for five additional species in New Brunswick. One new species of Stenotrachelidae, Cephaloon ungulare LeConte, is added to the New Brunswick faunal list. Additional records are provided for Cephaloon lepturides Newman, as well the first recent record of Nematoplus collaris LeConte. Two species of Oedemeridae, Asclera puncticollis (Say) and Asclera ruficollis (Say), are newly reported for New Brunswick, and additional locality and bionomic data are provided for Calopus angustus LeConte and Ditylus caeruleus (Randall). The records of Ditylus caerulus are the first recent records for the province. Three species of Meloidae, Epicauta pestifera Werner, Lytta sayi LeConte, and Meloe augustcollis Say are reported the first time for New Brunswick; Epicauta pestifera is newly recorded in Canada. Lacconotus punctatus LeConte and the family Mycteridaeis newly recorded for New Brunswick. The first recent records of Borus unicolor Say (Boridae) are reported from the province. One new species of Pythidae, Pytho siedlitzi Blair, and the first recent records of Pytho niger Kirby are added to the faunal list of New Brunswick. Three species of Pyrochroidae are newly reported for the province, including Pedilus canaliculatus (LeConte) and Pedilus elegans (Hentz), which are new for the Maritime provinces. Five species of Anthicidae and the first recent record of Anthicus cervinus LaFerté-Sénectére are newly reported for New Brunswick. Anthicus melancholicus LaFerté-Sénectère, Sapintus pubescens (LaFerté-Sénectère), Notoxus bifasciatus (LeConte), and Stereopalpus rufipes Casey are new to the Maritime provinces faunal list. Ambyderus granularis (LeConte) is removed from the faunal list of the province. Three species of Aderidae, Vanonus huronicus Casey, Zonantes fasciatus (Melsheimer), and Zonantes pallidusWerner, are newly recorded for New Brunswick; Zonantes fasciatus and Vanonus huronicus are new for the Maritime provinces' faunal list. Collection data, bionomic data, and distribution maps are presented for all these species.

Introduction

This paper treats new records from New Brunswick, Canada of a number of smaller families of beetles in the [taxon-name: Tenebrionoidea]: the [taxon-name: Stenotrachelidae], [taxon-name: Oedemeridae], [taxon-name: Meloidae], [taxon-name: Myceteridae], [taxon-name: Boridae], [taxon-name: Pythidae], [taxon-name: Pyrochroidae], [taxon-name: Anthicidae], and [taxon-name: Aderidae]. The fauna of most of these families from New Brunswick and Atlantic Canada was recently treated by Majka (2006) ([taxon-name: Mycteridae], [taxon-name: Boridae], [taxon-name: Pythidae], [taxon-name: Pyrochroidea]), Majka (2011a) ([taxon-name: Stenotrachelidae]), Majka (2011b) ([taxon-name: Anthicidae]), Majka (2011c) ([taxon-name: Aderidae]), and Majka and Langor (2011) ([taxon-name: Oedemeridae]). Campbell (1991c) reported only three species of [taxon-name: Meloidae] from New Brunswick. However, there have been no recent treatments of this family from the region. Intensive sampling in New Brunswick by the first author since 2003 and records obtained from by-catch samples during a study to develop a general attractant 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. 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 the detection of invasive species of [taxon-name: Cerambycidae]. Additional records (including data from the Forest Insect and Disease Survey (FIDS) slips) were obtained from specimens contained in the collection belonging to Natural Resources Canada, Canadian Forest Service - Atlantic Forestry Centre, Fredericton, New Brunswick.


Collection methods

Various methods were employed to collect the species reported in this study. Details are outlined in Webster et al. (2009, Appendix). Some specimens were collected from Lindgren funnel traps set in various forest types in New Brunswick between 2008 and 2011. These traps 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 12-funnel traps and 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 for each species.

Distribution

Distribution maps, created using ArcMap and ArcGIS, are presented for each species in New Brunswick. Every species is cited with current distribution in Canada and Alaska, using abbreviations for the state, provinces, and territories. New records for New Brunswick are indicated in bold under Distribution in Canada and Alaska. Acronyms of collections examined or where specimens reside referred to in this study are as follows:

Results
Species accounts

All records below are species newly recorded for New Brunswick, Canada, unless noted otherwise (additional record). Species followed by ** are newly recorded from the Maritime provinces (New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island) of Canada; species followed by *** are newly recorded for Canada.

The classification of the [taxon-name: Stenotrachelidae], [taxon-name: Oedemeridae], [taxon-name: Meloidae], [taxon-name: Myceteridae], [taxon-name: Boridae], [taxon-name: Pythidae], [taxon-name: Pyrochroidae], [taxon-name: Anthicidae], and [taxon-name: Aderidae] follows Bouchard et al. (2011).

Family [taxon-name: Stenotrachelidae] Thomson, 1859

The [taxon-name: Stenotrachelidae] is a small family of beetles with only nine species known from Canada (Campbell 1991b). Little is known about the behavior of adults, other than that they are sometimes found on flowers and are most often captured in Malaise or flight-intercept traps (Young 2002a). Larvae develop in decaying wood, and some species such as [taxon-name: Nematophus] and possibly [taxon-name: Cephaloon] may be associated with logs infested with brown rot fungi (Young 2002a). [taxon-name: Nematoplus collaris] LeConte was the only species of [taxon-name: Stenotrachelidae] reported from New Brunswick by Campbell (1991b). Majka (2011c), in a review of this family for Atlantic Canada, added [taxon-name: Cephaloon lepturides] Newman. Here, we add another species, [taxon-name: Cephaloon ungulare] LeConte, to the New Brunswick fauna, as well as additional records for [taxon-name: Cephaloon lepturides] and the first recent record for [taxon-name: Nematoplus collaris] (Table 1).

Collection and habitat data.

This species was found in a rich Appalachian hardwood forest with some conifers, mixed forests, an old red oak ([taxon-name: Quercus rubra] L.) forest, and an old red pine ([taxon-name: Pinus resinosa] Ait.) forest. Specimens were collected from flowers of mountain ash ([taxon-name: Sorbus] sp.), at an ultraviolet light, on balsam fir ([taxon-name: Abies balsamea] (L.) Mill.), and in Lindgren funnel traps. In New Brunswick, adults were captured during May, June, and July.

Distribution in Canada and Alaska.

ON, QC, NB, NS, PE (Campbell 1991b; Majka 2011c). Majka (2011c) first reported this species from New Brunswick based on a specimen collected by E. Ouellete in Shediac, Westmorland Co. during July 1978. [taxon-name: Cephaloon lepturides] appears to be widespread in the province.

Collection and habitat data.

One individual of this species was captured between late June and mid July in a flight-intercept trap deployed in an old-growth balsam fir and white spruce forest.

Distribution in Canada and Alaska.

ON, QC, NB (Campbell 1991b). This species was previously known from New Brunswick on the basis of a specimen (in CNC) collected by J.N. Knull in Bathurst, Gloucester Co. during June 1913. The above record is the first recent record of this species from the province and from the Maritime provinces.

Family [taxon-name: Oedemeridae] Latreille, 1810

The [taxon-name: Oedemeridae] (the false blister beetles) are usually found on flowers, foliage, and under driftwood and are often attracted to lights (Kriska 2002). Larvae typically occur in moist, decaying wood, including driftwood, in coastal species of oedemerids, and conifers for inland species (Kriska 2002). Campbell (1991e) reported only one species of [taxon-name: Oedemeridae] from New Brunswick; [taxon-name: Nacerdes melanura] (L). Majka and Langor (2011), in their review of the [taxon-name: Oedermeridae] of Atlantic Canada, added [taxon-name: Calopus angustus] LeConte and [taxon-name: Ditylus caeruleus] (Randall) to the faunal list of the province. Here, we report another two species, [taxon-name: Asclera puncticollis] (Say) and [taxon-name: Asclera ruficollis] (Say), and additional locality and habitat data for [taxon-name: Calopus angustus] and [taxon-name: Ditylus caeruleus] (Table 1).

MacKay, old mixed forest with red and white spruce, red and white pine, balsam fir, eastern white cedar, red maple, and [taxon-name: Populus] sp., Lindgren funnel trap (1, AFC).

Collection and habitat data.

Adults of [taxon-name: Calopus angustus] were collected in various forest types in New Brunswick, including hardwood forests with sugar maple ([taxon-name: Acer saccharum] Marsh.), American beech ([taxon-name: Fagus grandifolia] Ehrh.), eastern white cedar ([taxon-name: Thuja occidentalis] L.), an old-growth northern hardwood forest (white spruce, eastern white cedar, and balsam fir present), an old-growth eastern white cedar swamp, mixed forests, an old-growth white spruce and balsam fir forest, and an old red pine forest. Most adults were captured in Lindgren funnel traps. Some were also captured at an ultraviolet light. In western North America, Burke (1906) reared this species from a gallery of a living western cedar ([taxon-name: Thuja plicata] Don ex D. Don) and found larvae and pupae in dead and living branches of alpine fir ([taxon-name: Abies lasiocarpa] (Hook) Nutt.). This species probably uses related host trees, such as eastern white cedar and balsam fir, in our region. Adults were collected during April, May, and June, but most between late April and mid May.

Distribution in Canada and Alaska.

BC, AB, ON, QC, NB, NS (Campbell 1991e; Majka and Langor 2011). Majka and Langor (2011) reported this species for the first time for New Brunswick from one locality in Madawaska Co (East Iroquois River) and two localities in York Co. (Fredericton and Charters Settlement). This species is widespread and locally common in the province.

Collection and habitat data.

The larvae of [taxon-name: Ditylus] have been found in old wet cedar logs and the larval stage may last 3 years (Arnett 1951; Kriska 2002). In New Brunswick, this species was collected in a black spruce ([taxon-name: Picea mariana] (Mill.) B.S.P.) forest, a red pine forest, an alder ([taxon-name: Alnus] sp.) swamp, mixed forests, [taxon-name: Carex] marshes, and a beaver ([taxon-name: Castor canadensis] Kuhl.) dam. Adults were collected from leaf and grass litter and moss, by sweeping foliage, in flight, and on a red pine stump. Adults were common among sticks, debris, and mud within a beaver dam. Adults were collected during May and mid June.

Family [taxon-name: Meloidae] Gyllenhal, 1810

Most adult [taxon-name: Meloidae] (the blister beetles) are phytophagous, found particularly on species of [taxon-name: Asteraceae], Leguminosae, and [taxon-name: Solanaceae] (Pinto and Bologna 2002). The larvae are parasitoids on the provisions and immature stages of wild bees and eggs of grasshoppers. Campbell (1991c) reported 49 species and subspecies of [taxon-name: Meloidae] from Canada, most from the semiarid regions of the Prairie provinces and British Columbia. Only three species ([taxon-name: Meloe impressus] (Kirby), [taxon-name: Epicauta murina] (LeConte), and [taxon-name: Epicauta pennsylvanica] (DeGeer)), were reported from New Brunswick (Campbell 1991c). Here, we report [taxon-name: Epicauta pestifera] Werner, [taxon-name: Lytta sayi] LeConte, and [taxon-name: Meloe angusticollis] Say for the first time for New Brunswick (Table 1).

Family [taxon-name: Mycteridae] Oken, 1843

The [taxon-name: Mycteridae] (the palm and flower beetles) of North America was reviewed by Pollock (2002a). Little is known about the natural history of members of this family occurring in Canada. [taxon-name: Mycterus] adults are often collected from flowers (Pollock 2002a). A western species of [taxon-name: Lacconotus] was collected from under the bark of dead poplar ([taxon-name: Populus] spp.) (Lawrence 1991), and it is likely that most species of [taxon-name: Eurypinae] (formerly [taxon-name: Lacconotinae]) live under bark of dead trees (Pollock 2002a). The habits of adults are little known. Only four species of this family are known from Canada (Campbell 1991d). [taxon-name: Lacconotus punctatus] LeConte and the family [taxon-name: Mycteridae] were newly reported for the Maritime provinces by Majka and Selig (2006). Here, we report this species and family for the first time for New Brunswick (Table 1).

Family [taxon-name: Boridae] Thomson, 1859

The [taxon-name: Boridae] (the conifer bark beetles) is a small family of beetles represented by two species ([taxon-name: Borus unicolor] Say and [taxon-name: Lecontia discicollis] (LeConte)) in Canada and North America (Campbell 1991a; Pollock 2002b). The North American representatives of this family were reviewed by Pollock (2002b). Larvae of [taxon-name: Borus unicolor] inhabit in the subcortical region of dead, often standing or leaning, pines ([taxon-name: Pinus] sp.) and other coniferous species (Young 1991a). Larvae of [taxon-name: Lecontia discicollis] live in the subcortical region of fire-killed conifers (Young et al. 1996). Both species were reported by Majka (2006) for New Brunswick. [taxon-name: Borus unicolor] was reported for the first time for the province based on a specimen (in NBM) collected by W. McIntosh on 19 July 1901 in Saint John (Saint John Co.) (Majka 2006). Here, we report the first recent records of this uncommon species from the province (Table 1).

Family [taxon-name: Pythidae] Solier, 1834

The [taxon-name: Pythidae] (the dead log beetles) of North America was reviewed by Pollock (1991, 2002c). Larvae of the [taxon-name: Pythidae] live in the subcortical region of dead coniferous trees ([taxon-name: Pytho]) or in the sapwood of conifer logs in the red rot stage ([taxon-name: Priognathus]) (Pollock 1991; Young 1991d). The larvae of [taxon-name: Pytho] are apparently xylophagus, as they have been reared solely on cambium of conifers (Pollock 1991). Adults may be predaceous based on characters of the mandibles, otherwise the food requirements of adults in this family are poorly known. Campbell (1991g) reported three species of [taxon-name: Pythidae] from New Brunswick; [taxon-name: Priognathus monilicornis] (Randall), [taxon-name: Pytho americanus] Kirby, and [taxon-name: Pytho strictus] LeConte. Majka (2006) added [taxon-name: Pytho niger] Kirby based on a specimen collected by W. McIntosh in Saint John during June 1900.

NT, BC, AB, MB, ON, QC, NB, NS (Campbell 1991g). This species was previously known from Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia in the Maritime provinces (Campbell 1991g; Majka 2006). The above records from New Brunswick indicate a broader distribution for this species in the region.

Family [taxon-name: Pyrochroidae] Latreille, 1806

The [taxon-name: Pyrochroidae] (the fire-colored beetles) of North America were reviewed by Young (2002b). Larval habitat associations of members of this family were described by Young (1991c, 2002b), and these references should be consulted for details with respect to the biology of species in this family. In general, most species are associated with moist, decomposing, subcortical conditions of dead coniferous and deciduous trees. Larvae of a few [taxon-name: Pedilus] species have been found within decaying vegetative material on or in soil (Young 2002b). Four species of [taxon-name: Pyrochroidae] were reported for New Brunswick by Bousquet (1991c) and Campbell (1991f). No additional species of this family were reported by Majka (2006) in his review of the fauna of the Maritime provinces. Here, we report three additional species from New Brunswick; [taxon-name: Neopyrochroa femoralis] (LeConte), [taxon-name: Pedilus canaliculatus] (LeConte), and [taxon-name: Pedilus elegans] (Hentz) (Table 1). The latter two species are newly recorded for the Maritime provinces.

Family [taxon-name: Anthicidae] Latreille, 1819

The [taxon-name: Anthicidae] (the ant-like flower beetles) of North America was reviewed by Chandler (2002a). Members of this family are scavengers and predators on small arthropods. Many species are ground dwelling and typically occur on or under debris on exposed sand or soil or on vegetation (Chandler 2002a). Nine species of [taxon-name: Anthicidae] were reported from New Brunswick by Bousquet (1991b). [taxon-name: Sapintus pusillus] (LaFerté-Sénectère) was newly recorded from New Brunswick by Majka and Ogden (2006).

Family [taxon-name: Aderidae] Csiki, 1909

The [taxon-name: Aderidae] (ant-like leaf beetles) of eastern North America was reviewed by Werner (1990) and in a general treatment of the North American members of the family by Chandler (2002b). Adults are usually found on the underside of leaves of shrubs and trees (Chandler 2002b). Larvae have been found in leaf litter and under bark (Young 1991b). Majka (2011b) reviewed the [taxon-name: Aderidae] of the Maritime provinces and reported two species new to the region. Only [taxon-name: Vanonus wickhami] Casey was reported from New Brunswick (Bousquet 1991a; Majka 2011b). Here, we report three additional species of [taxon-name: Aderidae] from New Brunswick, including [taxon-name: Vanonus huronicus] and [taxon-name: Zonantes fasciatus], which are newly recorded for the Maritime provinces.
