Abstract

This paper treats 134 new records of Coleoptera for the province of New Brunswick, Canada from the following 41 families: Gyrinidae, Carabidae, Dytiscidae, Histeridae, Leiodidae, Scarabaeidae, Scirtidae, Buprestidae, Elmidae, Limnichidae, Heteroceridae, Ptilodactylidae, Eucnemidae, Throscidae, Elateridae, Lampyridae, Cantharidae, Dermestidae, Bostrichidae, Ptinidae, Cleridae, Melyridae, Monotomidae, Cryptophagidae, Silvanidae, Laemophloeidae, Nitidulidae, Endomychidae, Coccinellidae, Corylophidae, Latridiidae, Tetratomidae, Melandryidae, Mordellidae, Tenebrionidae, Mycteridae, Pyrochroidae, Aderidae, Scraptiidae, Megalopodidae, and Chrysomelidae. Among these, the following four species are newly recorded from Canada: Dirrhagofarsus ernae Otto, Muona & McClarin (Eucnemidae), Athous equestris (LeConte) (Elateridae), Ernobius opicus Fall (Ptinidae), and Stelidota coenosa Erichson (Nitidulidae). The Family Limnichidae is newly reported for New Brunswick, and one species is added to the fauna of Nova Scotia. Stephostethus productus Rosenhauer (Latridiidae), Tetratoma (Abstrulia) variegata Casey (Tetratomidae), and Chauliognathus marginatus (Fabricius) (Cantharidae) are removed from the faunal list of New Brunswick, and additional records of Lacconotus punctatus LeConte (Mycteridae) are presented and discussed. Lindgren funnel traps provided specimens for 104 (78%) of the species and were the sole source of specimens for 89 (66%) of the species reported here, suggesting they are a very useful tool for sampling Coleoptera fauna in the forests of New Brunswick.

Introduction

In recent years, the Coleoptera of New Brunswick has been studied intensively. In a series of papers published in a Special Issue of ZooKeys (179) on the biodiversity and ecology of the Coleoptera of New Brunswick, Canada, edited by Robert Anderson and Jan Klimaszewski, 320 species of Coleoptera were newly reported from the province in the following 59 families: Gyrinidae, Carabidae, Dytiscidae (Webster and DeMerchant 2012a); Histeridae (Webster et al. 2012c); Geotrupidae, Scarabaeidae (Webster et al. 2012e); Eucinetidae, Scirtidae (Webster et al. 2012f); Buprestidae (Webster and DeMerchant 2012b); Dryopidae, Elmidae, Psephenidae, Ptilodactylidae (Webster and DeMerchant 2012c); Eucnemidae (Webster et al. 2012g); Elateridae (Webster et al. 2012h); Lycidae (Webster et al. 2012i); Dermestidae, Endecatomidae, Bostrichidae, Ptinidae (Webster et al. 2012s); Trogossitidae, Cleridae, Melyridae (Webster et al. 2012j); Silvanidae, Laemophloeidae (Webster et al. 2012k); Sphindidae, Erotylidae, Monotomidae, Cryptophagidae (Webster et al. 2012l); Kateretidae, Nitidulidae, Cerylonidae, Endomychidae, Coccinellidae, Latridiidae (Webster et al. 2012m); Mycetophagidae, Tetratomidae, Melandryidae (Webster et al. 2012n); Mordellidae, Ripiphoridae (Webster et al. 2012o); Tenebrionidae, Zopheridae (Webster et al. 2012q); Stenotrachelidae, Oedemeridae, Meloidae, Mycteridae, Boridae, Pythidae, Pyrochroidae, Anthicidae, Aderidae (Webster et al. 2012p); Cerambycidae (Webster et al. 2012r); Megalopodidae, Chrysomelidae (Webster et al. 2012b); Anthribidae, Brentidae, Dryophthoridae, Brachyceridae, Curculionidae (Webster et al. 2012a). In these papers, new habitat and biological data were presented for many of the species, as well as an updated list of the species from each family known to occur in New Brunswick. Recently, Pelletier and Hébert (2014) reviewed the Cantharidae of eastern Canada and reported 19 species new to New Brunswick. Most recently, Webster et al. (2016) newly reported an additional 16 species of Cerambycidae for the province. These baseline biodiversity data are important for documentation of changes in our ecosystems due to human intervention and climate change.

During the last several years, additional new provincial records have been accumulated from the families Gyrinidae, Carabidae, Dytiscidae, Histeridae, Leiodidae, Scarabaeidae, Scirtidae, Buprestidae, Elmidae, Limnichidae, Heteroceridae, Ptilodactylidae, Eucnemidae, Throscidae, Elateridae, Lampyridae, Cantharidae, Dermestidae, Bostrichidae, Ptinidae, Cleridae, Melyridae, Monotomidae, Cryptophagidae, Silvanidae, Laemophloeidae, Nitidulidae, Endomychidae, Coccinellidae, Corylophidae, Latridiidae, Tetratomidae, Melandryidae, Mordellidae, Tenebrionidae, Mycteridae, Pyrochroidae, Aderidae, Scraptiidae, Megalopodidae, and Chrysomelidae. The purpose of this paper is to report these new records.

Methods and conventions

Collection methods. Various methods were employed to collect the specimens reported in this study. Details are outlined in Webster et al. (2009, Appendix) and Webster et al. (2012d). Many specimens were from Lindgren funnel trap samples from a study to improve methods for survey and detection of exotic and potentially invasive bark and wood-boring beetles (Cerambycidae and Curculionidae). These traps are visually similar to tree trunks and are often effective for sampling species of Coleoptera that live in microhabitats associated with standing trees (Lindgren 1983). Between 2009 and 2015, Lindgren funnel traps were deployed at 27 sites (24–64 traps per site). At many sites, starting in 2012, traps were deployed in the upper canopy as well as in the understory, usually in equal numbers, although at a few sites only canopy traps or understory traps were used. Canopy traps were 10–20 m above the ground, whereas understory traps were 1–1.5 m above the ground (i.e., 30–50 cm from the bottom of the collecting cup to the ground). In both cases, traps were suspended from rope such that the trap was at least 1 m from the main stem of trees and at least 30 m from another trap. Traps were baited with various combinations of lures for detecting Cerambycidae. However, data on attractants were not collected for non-target species. See Webster et al. (2012r), Hughes et al. (2014), and Webster et al. (2016) for additional details of the lures and methods used to deploy Lindgren traps and collect samples. A description of the habitat was recorded for all specimens collected during this survey. Locality and habitat data are presented as on labels for each record. Two labels were used on many specimens: one that included the locality, collection date, and collector, and one with macro- and microhabitat data and collection method. Information from the two labels is separated by a double slash (//) in the data presented from each specimen.

Specimen preparation and determination. Males of some species were dissected to confirm their identities. The genital structures were dehydrated in absolute alcohol and either mounted in Canada balsam on celluloid microslides or glued onto cards that were then pinned with the specimen from which they originated. Most specimens reported in this study were determined by the senior author using various keys to the families or genera treated in this publication. Some specimens in the families Ptinidae, Cryptophagidae, and Melyridae were compared to specimens from the Canadian National Collection (CNC) to confirm their names. A number of species in the families Scarabaeidae, Elateridae, Buprestidae, Dermestidae, Ptinidae, Elateridae, Melyridae, Mordellidae, Tenebrionidae, and Chrysomelidae were determined by curators at the CNC.

Results and discussion

In this account, we newly report 133 species and one new subspecies from NB. Four of these species are new for Canada. Additional records are given for the rarely collected Lacconotus punctatus LeConte (Mycteridae). One species is newly recorded from NS. Eighty-nine of the new records were collected exclusively from Lindgren funnel traps as part of a study to improve methods for survey and detection of exotic and potentially invasive bark and wood-boring beetles (Cerambycidae, Curculionidae). Another 15 species were detected using both Lindgren funnel traps and other sampling methods. The above data indicate that Lindgren traps are a very useful tool for sampling Coleoptera fauna in the forests of NB. Thirty-two species were found using methods such as litter sampling, light trapping, or use of an aquatic dip net. Below, we present the details of the new records.

Species accounts

All records below are species newly recorded for NB or NS, Canada, unless noted otherwise (additional records). Species indicated by a † are adventive to Canada; species with a * are Holarctic; species with a ‡ are either adventive or Holarctic. The determination that a species was a new record is based on information in the print version of Bousquet et al. (2013). The family-level classification used below follows Bouchard et al. (2011).

Comments

Larson et al. (2000) mentioned that Copelatus glyphicus (Say) was abundant during early August in gravel pit pools and tire ruts in peaty soils in NS and NB. However, this species was not listed as occurring in NB in the checklist of the species occurring in Canada (Table 1, p. 15) and there are no dots on the distribution map for this species in the province (Map 2, p. 52) in Larson et al. (2000). The records above confirm the presence of this species in NB. All specimens from NB were captured in Lindgren funnel traps.

Comments

This species has been treated by some authors as a subspecies of A. politus (Say), which uses various willow (Salix) species as larval hosts (Paiero et al. 2012). Larvae of A. pseudocoryli Fischer, in contrast, have been recorded from American hazelnut (Corylus americana Walter) and beaked hazelnut (C. cornuta Marsh.) (Paiero et al. 2012). Specimens from NB were collected on the foliage of beaked hazelnut. We have found specimens of A. politus in NB on the foliage of willow, and they have a slightly differently shaped aedeagus from those of A. pseudocoryli.

Family Limnichidae Erichson, 1846

Members of this small family are riparian and live on streamside plants, emergent vegetation and wood, or in drift material on stream margins and are thought to be herbivores (Shepard 2002). Three species of Limnichidae are known to occur in Canada (Bousquet et al. 2013). Here, we report Limnichites punctatus (LeConte) and this family for the first time for NB.

Most adults of L. punctatus were found along a river margin on moist bare clay near a seepage area. Specimens were collected after splashing the clay bank. The splashing caused them to move, making them easier to see on the dark substrate.

Family Heteroceridae MacLeay, 1825

The Heteroceridae or variegated mud-loving beetles, as their name implies, are often associated with mud and clay in riparian habitats, including salt marshes (Katovich 2002). Adults live and feed on algae and other organic material in shallow, often horizontal burrows in mud or moist organic sand (Katovich 2002). Katovich (2002) provided more details on the ecology and classification of this family. Bousquet et al. (2013) recorded 28 species from Canada, including five species for NB. Here, we report Heterocerus subtilis for the first time for the province.

Comments

Dirrhagofarsus ernae was recently described from OH, in the USA and occurs from NH, west to WI, south to MO, AL and VA (Otto et al. (2014). According to Otto et al. (2014), the sudden appearance of this species in the USA suggests that it may be an introduction to North America, possibly a previously unknown species from Asia. In NB, no specimens were encountered prior to 2013 despite intensive sampling with Lindgren funnel traps at many sites, including Odell Park, where it was first encountered during 2013. It is possible that D. ernae is a recent arrival to NB.

Family Throscidae Laporte, 1840

Only eight species of this small family of beetles have been documented from Canada, including two from NB (Bousquet et al. 2013). Majka (2011) reviewed the Throscidae of Atlantic Canada based on examination of specimens in collection from the region. He provided distribution maps, color habitus photographs, and a key to the species occurring in the region. Little is known about the biology of members of this family. Adults are often captured in light traps, passive traps, or netted in late afternoon flights, found in litter samples or collected from foliage, and may be generalist pollen and mold feeders (Yensen 1975, Johnson 2002). Other details on biology, structure, and classification are included in Johnson (2002). Here, we newly record Trixagus chevrolati (Bonvouloir) for the province.

Family Lampyridae Rafinesque, 1815

Lloyd (2002) provided an overview of the taxonomy, classification, and biology of the Lampyridae of North America. Later, Luk et al. (2011) provided a key to the species of Lampyridae of ON that is applicable to all species occurring in eastern Canada. The Lampyridae of Atlantic Canada were subsequently reviewed by Majka (2012), adding three new species for NB. Using the key by Luk et al. (2011), we identified specimens of Photinus aquilonius Lloyd and P. ignitus Fall from material originally determined as P. ardens LeConte. Both species are new to NB.

Family Cantharidae Imhoff, 1856

Pelletier and Hébert (2014) reviewed the taxonomy, known biology, and distribution the Cantharidae of eastern Canada and the northeastern USA. Members of this family, known as soldier beetles, are common and often occur on foliage and flowers. Most feed on small insects, nectar, and pollen, and some are natural control agents for aphids (Pelletier and Hébert 2014 and references therein). They newly reported 19 species for NB in this publication. Here, we add another four species of Cantharidae to the faunal list of NB and one for NS.

Tribe Chauliognathini LeConte, 1861
Chauliognathus marginatus (Fabricius, 1775) and C. pensylvanicus (DeGeer, 1774)

Chauliognathus marginatus (Fabricius) was reported from NB by Bousquet et al. (2013). This species is known only from extreme southern ON in Canada (Pelletier and Hébert 2014). We were not able to find any records of this species from NB. Interestingly, C. pensylvanicus (Fabricius), a common and widespread species in NB, was not included for the province by Bousquet et al. (2013). We assume that C. marginatus was included for NB instead of C. pensylvanicus (DeGeer) in error. In view of this, C. marginatus is removed from the faunal list of NB. Pelletier and Hébert (2014) provide supporting data for the occurrence of C. pensylvanicus in NB.

Superfamily Bostrichoidea Latreille, 1802

Webster et al. (2012s) reviewed the Dermestidae, Endecatomidae, Bostrichidae, and Ptinidae fauna of NB and newly reported two species of Dermestidae, two Bostrichidae, and five species of Ptinidae. The family Endecatomidae was reported for the first time for the province on the basis of Endecatomus rugosus (Randall). Here, three new Dermestidae, one new Bostrichidae, and 20 new Ptinidae are added to the faunal list for the province. One of these, Ernobius opicus Fall, is a new to Canada. Two of the three species of Dermestidae and all but one of the 20 species of Ptinidae were first detected using Lindgren funnel traps and nearly all specimens of these species were caught in these traps.

Comments

Ernobius opicus is easily distinguished from its congeners by the combination of scabrous and opaque (conspicuously granulate) elytra being slightly less shiny than the prothorax, fifth segment of antennae being as long as the third, and the peculiar lateral sinuation of the anterior edge of the pronotum (Fall 1905). The species was described from specimens from MA and MI.

Comments

Two subspecies of Thanasimus undatulus (Say), T. undatulus undatulus and T. undatulus nubilus (Klug), co-occur at many sites in NB. The two subspecies differ in overall coloration, color pattern, and size. Thanasimus u. undatulus is black with the basal third of pronotum red-brown, and the white posterior band on elytra continues as a narrow band along the suture to near or to the posterior margin of the elytra. The average length is smaller: from 5.2 to 6.8 mm. Thanasimus u. nubilus is black, without red-brown areas on the pronotum and elytra, and there is little or no extension of the white posterior band along the suture toward elytral apex (body length 6.2 to 9.3 mm). We have not seen any intermediate specimens. More studies are required to establish if these two subspecies should be treated as distinct species.

Comments

All specimens of C. pilosa reported from NB were captured in Lindgren funnel traps. At sites (seven of eight sites where species was detected) where both high (canopy) and low traps were tested, C. pilosa was captured exclusively in traps deployed in the canopy of trees. This species was captured in low traps at only one site (Eel River P.N.A.). At this site, canopy traps were not used, and the four specimens were captured in traps along the edge of an open fen.

Comments

Atomaria lederi Johnson was first reported for North America by Johnson et al. (2007) without supporting data. Majka et al. (2010) provided supporting data for Johnson’s record and additional locality and habitat data from NS for the presence of A. lederi in Canada and North America. This species is widespread in NS and was found mostly in red spruce (Picea rubens Sarg.) and red spruce–eastern hemlock (Tsuga canadensis (L.) Carr.) forests (Majka et al. 2010). New Brunswick specimens were collected from Lindgren funnel traps in a mixed forest, jack pine (Pinus banksiana Lamb.) forest, red oak (Quercus rubra L.) forest, old-growth white spruce (Picea glauca (Moench) Voss) and balsam fir (Abies balsamea (L.) Mill.) forest, and a red spruce forest with some red maple (Acer rubrum L.) and balsam fir. Bousquet et al. (2013) considered the status of A. lederi in North America as uncertain and that the species could either be adventive to North America or Holarctic. Klimaszewski et al. (2015) treated A. lederi as an adventive Palaearctic species. Given that this species was collected in natural habitats throughout NB and NS suggests it could be a Holarctic species that has been undetected in Canada and North America until recently.

Comments

This adventive and cosmopolitan species is found in various stored products such as lima beans, pigeon peas, decaying soybeans, stored grains, fruit, nuts, damp flour, rice, and moldy grass and feeds on surface molds on these items (Campbell et al. 1989, Thomas 1993). The two specimens from NB were captured in Lindgren funnel traps in the canopy of trees in a mixed forest. This stored product pest is not normally associated with natural habitats. There are a number of farms with barns within 2 km of the site that could have been the source of these specimens.

Comments

The adventive C. turcicus is considered a serious pest of flour and feed mills and is sometimes found in grain elevators and warehouses (Bousquet 1990). Specimens from NB were captured in Lindgren funnel traps in an old white pine (Pinus strobus L.) stand, mixed forest with red oak, and a mixed forest. This stored product pest is not normally associated with natural habitats. Several poultry farms occur in the vicinity of the sites, and it is likely that these were dispersing individuals from these farms. Interestingly, two other stored product pests, C. pusillus Schönherr and A. advena were also collected at one of these sites.

Family Nitidulidae Latreille, 1802

The Nitidulidae of NB and the Maritime Provinces were first reviewed by Majka et al. (2008), where they newly recorded 28 species. Webster et al. (2012m) added another three species. Here, we add three more species, including Stelidota coenosa Erichson, which is newly recorded for Canada. Two of these species were captured almost exclusively in Lindgren funnel traps.

Comments

The Palaearctic S. gibberosus was first reported for Canada by Bousquet et al. (2013) without any supporting data. Klimaszewski et al. (2015) provided details for this record, which was from near St. Williams, ON. Specimens were collected in a forest near vernal pools. No information was provided on the habitat of this adventive species in the Palaearctic. Most specimens from NB were captured in an old red oak forest and one from an old white pine stand.

Family Coccinellidae Latreille, 1807

Majka and McCorquodale (2006) reported 39 species of Coccinellidae from NB but did not report any new provincial records. Recently, Webster et al. (2012m) reported three species new to the province. Here, we newly record Diomus terminatus (Say) and Didion nanum (LeConte).

Family Corylophidae LeConte, 1852

The classification, taxonomy, and biology of the North American species of Corylophidae (minute hooded beetles or minute fungus beetles) were reviewed by Bowestead and Leschen (2002). Members of this family are often found on leaves and flowers, in leaf litter, grass piles, under bark, and sometimes in bird and caterpillar nests where the adults and larvae feed on fungal spores (Bowestead and Leschen 2002). Majka and Cline (2006) reviewed the Corylophidae of the Maritime Provinces and reported three species from NB, including Orthoperus suturalis LeConte and Rypobius marinus LeConte, which were new to the province. Bousquet et al. (2013) included another species on the faunal list of NB, Clypastraea lugubris (LeConte), in the most recent checklist of the Coleoptera of Canada. In this publication, we newly record five species of Corylophidae for NB.

Comments

Pollock and Majka (2012) reviewed the Nearctic Lacconotus and provided new data on distribution and habitat associations of L. punctatus. They showed that L. punctatus is more widespread in eastern North America than previously known. Lacconotus punctatus was reported from mixed forests, an oak savanna, and mature bottomland hardwood forests (Pollock and Majka 2012, Ulyshen et al. 2010). In NB, this species was found in similar forest types, including a hardwood bottomland woodland, a hardwood bottomland forest on an island, a Populus balsamifera stand near a river, mixed forests with red oak, a red oak forest, and an oak forest near a seasonally flooded marsh. Webster et al. (2012p) reported specimens from a bottomland (silver maple forest), a red oak forest, and a mature red spruce forest with scattered red maple. Most adults were collected early in the season from late May to mid-June, with a few captured as late as early August. Lacconotus punctatus was found at seven new localities in NB and appears to be widespread in the province.

All specimens from NB were captured in Lindgren funnel traps, showing the effectiveness of these traps for detecting this rare species. Interestingly, all but four of the 48 adults of L. punctatus were captured in the canopy of trees. In a mature bottomland hardwood forest in GA, five of six specimens were captured in flight intercept traps 15 m above the forest floor early in the season (Ulyshen et al. (2010). They suggested that L. punctatus might be a canopy and early seasonal specialist and the reason why this species is infrequently collected. Our data support their conclusion.

Family Scraptiidae Gistel, 1848

The Scraptiidae (False flower beetles or Scraptiid beetles) is a small family of beetles widely distributed in North America. Pollock (2002) provided an overview of the taxonomy, classification, and known biology of this family. Adults of many species occur on flowers, often in abundance, and the larvae live under bark of trees (Young 1991, Majka and Pollock 2006). Little else is known about the biology. Twenty species are known from Canada (Bousquet et al. 2013). Majka and Pollock (2006) reported three species of Scraptiidae previously known from NB in their review of this and related families of the Maritime Provinces. Here, we newly record Anaspis nigrina Csiki for the province.

Comments

The adventive B. villosus (broom seed beetle) was first reported in Atlantic Canada from NS by Majka and Langor (2011). In NS, this adventive Palaearctic species was found on the adventive weed, Scotch broom (Cytisis scoparius (L.) Link) (Fabaceae) (Majka and Langor 2011). In NB, B. villosus was swept from foliage and flowers of Lathyrus japonicus Willid. (beach pea), a native member of the Fabaceae, and from foliage in a meadow, and along a roadside at two inland sites where beach pea and Scotch broom do not occur. More study is required to establish if B. villosus will become a pest on native Fabaceae.

Comments

Poison ivy, Toxicodendron radicans (L.) Kuntze, has been reported as the preferred host for this species (see Clark et al. (2004) for a complete list of references). This vine was common at the site where the NB specimen was collected. P. tridens was thought to be restricted to the Carolinian Life Zone in Canada, and records from MB and QC were considered questionable by Barney et al. (2013). This distinctive species has not been collected in Canada since 1950 and was considered to be extirpated from Canada by Barney et al. (2013). The record from NB indicates that the species is still present in Canada.
