Abstract

The Coleoptera fauna of the province of Prince Edward Island has long been one of the most poorly known jurisdictions in Canada, with fewer than half the number of species recorded in the neighbouring provinces of New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. If much of the difference in species richness was due to less intensive sampling of the province compared to other parts of Atlantic Canada it was predicted that surveys with semiochemical-baited traps would detect many previously undetected species. Lindgren funnel traps were baited with longhorn beetle pheromones and host volatiles and placed in the canopy and understory of coniferous and deciduous trees at the Valleyfield, New Harmony, Auburn, and Brookvale Demonstration Woodlots during the summers of 2018 and 2019. Two hundred and ninety-five species of Coleoptera are newly recorded from Prince Edward Island from 53 families. One of these, the Palaearctic Pityophagus ferrugineus (Linnaeus, 1760) is reported for the first time from North America and Canada. The families Lycidae, Derodontidae, Lymexylidae, Sphindidae, Cucujidae, Ripiphoridae, Salpingidae, and Nemonychidae are newly recorded for the province. A checklist of the Coleoptera of Prince Edward Island is provided.

Introduction

Prince Edward Island (PE) is one of the Maritime Provinces, a region of eastern Canada on the Atlantic coast that also includes New Brunswick (NB) and Nova Scotia (NS). It lies within the Atlantic Maritime Ecozone (McAlpine and Smith 2010). The Atlantic Ocean strongly influences the climate of the region resulting in cooler summers and warmer winters than in the interior. This is especially true for PE. This island province is located at 46 degrees latitude, 63 degrees longitude in the Gulf of St. Lawrence, and is separated from NB and NS by the Northumberland Straight. (Fig. 1). This crescent-shaped island is 224 km long and ranges in width from 6 km to 64 km. With a total area of 5,656 km2 PE is the smallest province in Canada. Prior to European settlement of PE in the 1700s, 98% of the province was covered in Acadian Forest with American beech, yellow birch, sugar maple, white pine, eastern hemlock, red oak, and white ash on rich sites and species such as white spruce, black spruce, eastern larch, poplar, and white birch on poorer sites (Loo and Ives 2003; MacQuarrie and Lacroix 2003; Loo et al. 2010). Much of PE’s forest cover has since been replaced with agricultural fields and residential development, although some of the farmland has reverted to forest (Anon 2013). Currently, only about 44% of the island is covered with forest (Loo and Ives 2003; MacQuarrie and Lacroix 2003; Anon 2013). Much that remains is impoverished (re-growth) and only a few small relict old forests and areas of original vegetation are left (Loo and Ives 2003). The island has extensive salt and freshwater wetlands, often associated with small rivers and streams of which many experience a tidal influence, and extensive coastal sand dunes.

The Coleoptera fauna of PE has long been one of the most poorly known jurisdictions in Canada. The first checklist of the beetles of Canada by Bousquet (1991) listed only 340 species. However, since that checklist was published there has been a significant increase in the knowledge of the Coleoptera fauna through the contributions of several people and via various taxonomic revisions and general treatments of the Canadian fauna. The most significant contributions were made by Christopher G. Majka and collaborators through the examination of collections such as the Agriculture and Agri-Food collection, the University of Prince Edward Island collection, his own sampling, and sampling by others on the island. Many of these publications treated the fauna of the Maritime Provinces or Atlantic Canada as a whole and provided many new records for PE. Fifty-six families were treated in these publications and are listed here in the phylogenetic order used in Bousquet et al. (2013), followed by the number of new records in parentheses for PE: Gyrinidae (5) (Majka 2008c), Carabidae (18) (Majka 2005b, Majka et al. 2006a, 2008b), Haliplidae (1), Dytiscidae (6), Helophoridae (2), Hydrophilidae (12), (Majka 2008c), Histeridae (3) (Majka 2008a), Ptiliidae (3) (Majka and Sörensson 2007), Leiodidae (2) (Majka and Langor 2008), Silphidae (4) (Majka 2011g), Staphylinidae (24) (Majka 2012b, Klimaszewski and Majka 2007, 2008a,b, c, 2010), Eucinetidae (1) (Majka 2010a), Byrrhidae (4) (Majka et al. 2006b, Majka and Langor 2011b), Eucnemidae (4) (Majka 2007c), Throscidae (2) (Majka 2011b), Elateridae (27) (Majka and Johnson 2008), Lampyridae (5) (Majka 2012a), Dermestidae (9), Bostrichidae (5), Ptinidae (12) (Majka 2007b), Trogossitidae (1) (Majka 2011c), Cleridae (7) (Majka 2006b), Melyridae (1) (Majka 2005a), Erotylidae (2) (Majka 2007a), Monotomidae (2) (Majka and Bousquet 2010), Cryptophagidae (2) (Majka et al. 2010; Majka and Langor 2010), Silvanidae (2) (Majka 2008b), Phalacrididae (2) (Majka et al. 2008c), Laemophloeidae (1) Majka 2008b), Nitidulidae (9) (Majka and Cline 2006a), Cerylonidae (1) (Majka 2011d), Endomychidae (1) (Majka 2007a), Coccinellidae (14) (Majka and McCorquodale 2006), Corylophidae (1) (Majka and Cline 2006b), Latridiidae (13) (Majka et al. 2009), Mycetophagidae (1) (Majka 2010d), Ciidae (2) (Majka 2007d), Tetratomidae (2), Melandryidae (4) (Majka and Pollock 2006), Mordellidae (11) (Majka and Jackman 2006), Tenebrionidae (15) (Majka et al. 2008a), Synchroidae (1) Majka and Pollock 2006), Stenotracheliae (1) (Majka 2011a), Oedemeridae (1) (Majka and Langor 2011a), Pythidae (1), Pyrochroidae (3) (Majka 2006a), Anthicidae (6) (Majka 2011e), Aderidae (1) (Majka 2011f), Scraptiidae (3) (Majka and Pollock 2006), Cerambycidae (28) (Majka et al. 2007c), Chrysomelidae (10) (LeSage et al. 2007; Majka and LeSage 2007, 2008, 2010; LeSage and Majka 2010; Majka and Langor 2011c), Cerambycidae (28) (Majka et al. 2007c), Anthribidae (1), Attelabidae (1) (Majka et al. 2007b), Brentidae (2) (Majka et al. 2007a,b), Dryophthoridae (1) Brachyceridae (1) Curculionidae (54) (Majka et al. 2007a). Majka (2010b) obtained 11 new records from the families Carabidae (1), Staphylinidae (5), Ptinidae (1), Chrysomelidae (1), Brentidae (1), and Curculionidae (2) during a brief one-day survey of the Coleoptera of the Townshend Woodlot, using sweep netting, manually searching under rocks, in rotten wood, and on gill fungi. In another study, using maple sap as an attractant, eight new Coleoptera records were obtained from the families Staphylinidae (2), Scirtidae (2), Lampyridae (1), Nitidulidae (1), and Curculionidae (2) (Majka 2010c). One new tribe of Aleocharinae (Boreocypha) and a new species, Boreocypha websteri Klimaszewski & Langor, was described, in part, based on a specimen collected by Majka in St. Patricks, PE (Klimaszewski et al. 2011). Other publications by Jan Klimaszewski and collaborators included new staphylinid (Aleocharinae) records either as new species descriptions or new provincial records (Klimaszewski et. al. 2004 (2), 2007 (2)). Brunke et al. (2011) provided two new Staphylinidae (Staphylininae) records for the island and Webster et al. (2012a) reported two new species of Curculionidae. As a result of these and other publications, 599 species were added to the faunal list since Bousquet (1991) bringing the number of species known to occur in the province to 899 (Bousquet et al. 2013)

The impetus for this study was the low number of beetle species reported from PE (899) compared to those recorded from the neighbouring provinces of NB (2,703) and NS (2,286) in Bousquet et al. (2013). Since the publication of the Bousquet et al. (2013) checklist, 42 species have been added to the faunal list of PE in publications by Alarie (2016), Pentinsaari et al. (2019), Hammond and Chambers (2020), Webster et al. (2020, 2022) bringing the total known from the province to 941. However, many additional Coleoptera species have also been recorded in NB and NS (Webster 2016; Webster et al. 2016a, b, c, f, 2020, 2022; Hammond and Chambers 2020) during this same period, widening the gap even further. Currently, there are 3,152 and 2,338 species known from NB and NS, respectively.

Many of the new species records for NB and NS in the last decade resulted from specimens of target taxa and bycatch collected in numerous field experiments testing effects of semiochemical lures, trap height, and trap color on detection of Cerambycidae, Buprestidae, and Curculionidae in traps (e.g., Webster et al. 2016a, Flaherty et al. 2019; Rassati et al. 2019; Sweeney et al. 2020). We reasoned that much of the difference in species richness was due to less intensive sampling of PE compared to other parts of Atlantic Canada, as suggested by Majka et al. (2007b). Thus, we predicted that surveys with Lindgren funnel traps baited with semiochemicals placed in the canopy and understory of forests in different areas of PE would attract many previously undetected species that had already been collected using similar methods in NB and NS. However, other factors undoubtedly also explain the apparent lower beetle species richness on PE such as its smaller total land area (5,656 km2) and proportion of land with forest cover (44%) (Anon 2013) relative to NB (72,908 km2, 85%) (Nadeau et al. 2007) and NS (55,284 km2, 75%) (Anon 2017). PE is 7.8% and 9.8% of the land area of NB and NS, respectively.

Methods and methods

Collection methods

The purpose of this two-year study was to improve our knowledge of Coleoptera species composition on PE using relatively low maintenance survey methods, i.e., Lindgren funnel traps and a small number of flight intercept panel traps serviced about once per month. We placed 5–16 traps in each of three demonstration woodlots in 2018 and in the same three woodlots plus a fourth demonstration woodlot in 2019. Most of the traps were 12-unit Lindgren funnel traps. Black Lindgren 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). Green Lindgren traps are more effective than black traps for collecting certain genera of jewel beetles, e.g., Agrilus spp., especially when placed in the mid-upper canopy of trees (Rassati et al. 2019). When baited with various combinations of lures, these traps have been very effective at providing new species records and species new to science in the Maritime Provinces (Anderson and Klimaszewski 2012; Lopes-Andrade et al. 2016; Webster et al. 2016b, 2020, 2022) and Maine (DiGirolomo et al. 2021). In 2019, we also used one or two flight intercept panel traps (Alpha-Scents Inc., Canby, OR) customized by substituting white Coroplast panels (Coroplast, Vanceburg, KY) for the black panels.

Traps were baited with either: 1) a hardwood blend that consisted of five synthetic longhorn beetle pheromone lures (racemic 3-hydroxyhexan-2-one, racemic 3-hydroxyoctan-2-one, syn-2,3-hexanediols, fuscumol, and fuscumol acetate) plus an ultra-high release rate (UHR) ethanol lure; 2) a softwood blend that consisted of four pheromones (monochamol, ipsenol, fuscumol, and fuscumol acetate) plus UHR alpha-pinene and UHR ethanol; or 3) UHR ethanol by itself. The latter lure was used only in 2019, and only for the first month (7–8 May to 4–5 June), after which traps were baited with either the hardwood or softwood blend. These and similar lure combinations have proven effective at catching many species of bark- and wood-boring beetles (e.g., Miller et al. 2016; Flaherty et al. 2019). Traps were placed at two heights: 1) low traps were suspended from a rope tied between two trees that were separated by at least 2.0 m with the trap collecting cup 30–50 cm above ground; 2) canopy traps were suspended from a rope over a branch in the mid- or upper canopy using methods described in Hughes et al. (2014). We recorded the tree species in which each trap was placed (canopy traps) or nearest (low traps). All traps contained a saturated solution of table salt (NaCl) in water as a killing agent and preservative, with a drop of liquid dish detergent to reduce surface tension. Traps were sampled at approximately one-month intervals. At least one specimen of each species was vouchered at each study site each year. The number of traps used at each of the four study sites and site-specific details are described below.

Study sites

We selected four of the six demonstration woodlots on PE (Fig. 1). These woodlots were created by the Department of Agriculture and Forestry as a means of providing woodlot owners, forestry contractors, and the public with examples of forest management to increase public awareness of forestry issues on the island, and provide recreational areas for hiking, bird watching, etc. The woodlots are a mixture of reclaimed farmland and older forest, and each contains a variety of forest cover types, including hardwoods, conifers, and young plantations.

Valleyfield Demonstration Woodlot

Located in Valleyfield in Kings Co., at 46.1356°N, 62.7198°W. This mature stand is dominated by red maple and eastern hemlock with patches of balsam fir, white and yellow birch, and some poplar. The site had some downed poplar and eastern hemlock. Twelve Lindgren funnel traps (five green traps placed 10–16 m high in the canopy, one low green and six low black traps) were deployed 12 June–13 September 2018. Six low black funnel traps, six canopy green funnel traps, and one low white panel trap were deployed 7 May–17 September 2019.

New Harmony Demonstration Woodlot

Located in Kings Co., at 46.3914°N, 62.2021°W. This mature stand is dominated with red maple, sugar maple, and red spruce with patches of white pine and poplar. Downed material is mostly poplar and spruce. Six low black funnel traps, six canopy green funnel traps (10–12 m in height), and one low white panel trap were deployed 8 May–17 September 2019.

Auburn Demonstration Woodlot

Located in Auburn in Queens Co., at 46.2882°N, 62.9267°W. This mature stand is dominated with white spruce and balsam fir with large tooth aspen with some snags present. Wild black raspberry is common in understory with downed woody material (mostly poplar). Twelve funnel traps (six green traps 12–14 m high in the canopy, three low green and three low black traps) were deployed 13 June–13 September 2018. Four funnel traps (two low black traps, two canopy green traps) and one low white panel trap were deployed 7 May–17 September 2019.

Brookvale Demonstration Woodlot

Located in Brookvale in Queens Co., at 46.2920°N, 63.4051°W. This stand is a mix of mature and young trees dominated by white spruce and white birch with a few white pine, Douglas fir, and poplar also present. Twelve Lindgren funnel traps (six green, six black, all low) were deployed 13 June–13 September 2018. Twelve funnel traps (eight low, four canopy (8–10 m in height), equal numbers of green and black) were deployed 7 May–17 September 2019, and an additional six low traps (two green funnel, two black funnel, two white panel traps) were deployed 4 June–17 September 2019.

Specimen preparation, determination, and photography

For each specimen the following data was provided on two labels: first label with province, county, township, name of demonstration woodlot (Auburn Demonstration Woodlot), GPS data presented in decimal degrees for the center of the study site, collection date (range of dates between sample collections), collector (all specimens/samples were collected by Cory Hughes); second label with forest type, Lindgren funnel trap, its color and height (1 m high or in canopy), tree species trap was deployed under (low traps) or in (canopy traps), trap number, and lure blend (hardwood blend or conifer blend).

Males of some species were dissected to confirm their identities. The genital structures were removed and dehydrated in absolute alcohol and either mounted in Canada balsam on celluloid micro slides or glued onto cards that were then pinned with the specimens from which they originated. Most specimens were determined by the senior author. Donald Bright (Colorado State University) determined the Pityophthorus and some other Scolytinae. It least one voucher specimen of each species from each site was deposited in either the Atlantic Forestry Centre (AFC) collection or in the Reginald Webster Collection (RWC) or both as specified in the species accounts below.

Images of the dorsal habitus of two specimens of Pityophagus ferrugineus (Linnaeus) (Nitidulidae) were taken using an image processing system (Nikon SMZ 1500 stereoscopic microscope, Nikon DS-L3 Digital Camera, NIS Elements, and Adobe Photoshop software).

Data reported

Since much of the data on the labels is the same for each site (see site descriptions above), only the following data is provided for each new record: County, township, GPS data, collection date, low or canopy trap (if a canopy trap, also the tree species in which it was deployed), number of voucher specimens, and the collection in which they are deposited.

Results and discussion

In this two-year study, 549 species in 70 families were recorded from the Valleyfield, New Harmony, Auburn, and Brookvale Woodlots (Table 1). Among these species were 300 species new to PE in 53 families. This represents 54.6% of the species collected during this study. Five of these new records [the adventive Anthribus nebulosus Forster, Polydrusus impressifrons Gyllenhal, Hylastes opacus Erichson, Xyloborinus saxeseni (Ratzeburg), and X. germanus (Blandford)] were previously reported by Webster et al. (2020). The families Lycidae, Derodontidae, Lymexylidae, Sphindidae, Cucujidae, Ripiphoridae, Salpingidae, and Nemonychidae are newly recorded for the province. With these additions, there are currently 1,236 Coleoptera species in 81 families in PE (Table 1).

The large number of new records clearly demonstrate the utility of Lindgren funnel traps for improving our knowledge of Coleoptera species distributions and supports our contention that less intensive sampling on PE relative to NB was partially responsible for the lower number of species previously known from the province. Although this study resulted in a significant increase in Coleoptera species known from PE, the 1,236 known species is still only 39.2% of the number known from NB (3,152). Other factors, such as the smaller total land area of PE (5,656 km2) compared to NB (72,908 km2), the lower proportion of land with forest cover on PE (44%) (Anon 2013) relative to NB (85%) due to agriculture and residential development (Nadeau et al. 2007), the lower range in elevation on PE (0–142 m) compared to NB (0–817 m), and the lower diversity of forest and habitat types on PE vs. NB, influence species richness in these two provinces. NB has significantly more forest and wetland types than PE (McAlpine and Smith 2010) and the number of Coleoptera species in each of these two provinces will clearly reflect this diversity difference with more species expected to occur in NB as a result. However, sampling has still been inadequate on the island. Many species live in specialized habitats and require more specialized and habitat targeted sampling. There were often families and species that were generally not well represented in Lindgren funnel trap collections in this study.

Among the families well represented in the funnel traps were the Eucnemidae, Elateridae, Lycidae, Cantharidae, Cleridae, Nitidulidae, Ciidae, Melandryidae, Cerambycidae, Nemonychidae, and Curculionidae (Table 1). Families not well represented were the Gyrinidae, Carabidae, Haliplidae, Dytiscidae, Hydrophilidae, Leiodidae, Staphylinidae, Buprestidae, Coccinellidae, and Chrysomelidae) (Table 1). The aquatic Coleoptera (Gyrinidae, Haliplidae, Dytiscidae, Hydrophilidae) require more specialized sampling methods such as dip netting in various kinds of aquatic habitats, as noted by Alarie (2016). These families are reasonably well known for PE as a result of his targeted sampling on the island. The low proportion (9.1%) of known Carabidae from PE captured in Lindgren funnel traps in this study (Table 1) was also not unexpected considering that most carabids are associated with habitats on the ground, as their common name, ground beetles, implies (Larochelle and Larivière 2003). Pitfall trapping, hand collecting under rocks and logs, litter sifting, treading wetland habitats, splashing pond and stream margins, and ultraviolet light trapping provided many new records for this family for NB (Webster and Bousquet 2008). Majka (2008b) added 14 species using primarily pitfall trapping. Continued use of these methods will undoubtedly result in more species records in this large family. In the current study 36 species of Staphylinidae were added to the faunal list of the province, bringing the total number of species known to 124 (Table 1.). Compared to NB, with 767 species (Webster 2016), this number is very low and a number of genera that are well represented in NB (Lordithon, Tachinus, Tachyporus, Atheta, Philhygra, Gyrophaena, Oxypoda, Stenus, Philonthus; Webster 2016) are poorly represented in PE, or absent (Philhygra, Oxypoda). For example, 31 species of Gyrophaena are known from NB (Webster 2016), only two are known from PE (Bousquet et al. 2013). Members of this genus are often abundant in fungi on the forest floor or on standing trees (Klimaszewski et al. 2009). There are undoubtedly many more than two species of this genus on PE. Other species of Staphylinidae are associated with wetland habitats (freshwater and salt marshes, vernal ponds, stream, pond and lake margins, intertidal habitats), forest floor habitats (leaf litter, moss, rotten logs, fungi), animal nests, and standing tree habitats (subcortical, tree holes) (Newton et al. 2001; Klimaszewski et al. 2018). Sampling of such habitats will undoubtedly result in a significant number of new records of this family for PE, as has been the case in NB (Webster et al. 2016d, e). The Staphylinidae will undoubtedly become the largest family of Coleoptera on PE once this family is adequately sampled. Sampling these habitats should also result in the discovery of many other Coleoptera species on PE. Sweeping and beating foliage in a variety of open and forested habitats should be productive for Coccinellidae, Chrysomelidae, and Curculionidae.

Species accounts

Species with a † are adventive to Canada, species with a ‡ are either Holarctic or adventive to Canada, species with an * are Holarctic. The determination that a species was a new was based on absence from Bousquet et al. (2013), Webster et al. (2020, 2022), and other publications since Bousquet et al. (2013). The classification used below follows Bousquet et al. (2013) except for the Hydrophiloidea, which follows Short and Fikáĉek (2013). Below we report 295 species new to this island province and include a brief synopsis of the 81 families known from PE.

Family GYRINIDAE Latreille, 1810

Bousquet et al. (2013) listed nine species of Gyrinidae for PE. Alarie (2016) added another three species for a total of 12 species for the province. In this study, no members of this aquatic family of beetles were captured in Lindgren funnel traps.

Family CARABIDAE Latreille, 1802

Bousquet et al. (2013) reported 174 species of Carabidae from PE. A significant proportion of these records were from a two-year survey in 1987 and 1988 by Larochelle and Larivière (1990) who added 108 species. In this study, 16 species were captured in Lindgren funnel traps. Only two of these are new to PE. Interestingly, these two species are associated with trees (under bark of fallen or standing trees; Larochelle and Larivière 2003), and are species that one would expect to be captured in Lindgren funnel traps (Lindgren 1983).

Fifty-one species of Staphylinidae were collected in Lindgren funnel traps in this study (Table 1). Thirty-six of these (70.6%) are new records for PE, bringing the total number of Staphylinidae known from PE to 124, demonstrating the effectiveness of these traps for detecting new members of this family. However, compared to NB with its 767 species (Webster 2016), this number is low and many additional species are likely to be found in the province with more habitat-targeted sampling.

Distribution in Canada and Alaska. PE, New Canadian and North American Record.

Comments: Specimens (all females) of an unusual Pityophagus species unlike any North American species were captured at the Brookvale Woodlot (Fig. 2A). After checking various websites showing Palaearctic Pityophagus species, it appeared that this species was likely the European P. ferrugineus. We were able to confirm this identification by comparing our specimens with specimens (six females, one male) from Sweden and Finland (one female from Sweden is illustrated in Fig. 2B); the specimens were nearly identical in morphology, including the shape of the female ovipositor. In view of this, we conclude that the PE specimens are P. ferrugineus, which is a new North American and Canadian record.

Pityophagus ferrugineus likely arrived in North America via untreated wood packaging of goods imported from Eurasia. Larvae of P. ferrugineus are common in galleries of coniferous bark beetles in Eurasia where they prey on larvae of a number of Scolytinae genera, including Ips, Hylastes, and Dryocoetes (Anon 2022). Scolytinae were the most common subfamily of beetles in wood packaging intercepted at US ports of entry between 1985 and 2000 (Haack 2006) and between 1984 and 2008 (Haack et al. 2014). Pityophagus ferrugineus is attracted to stored wood (Lindelöw et al. 1992) as well as traps baited with ethanol and alpha-pinene (Schroeder 1999) or ethanol and lineatin (Martikainen 2001). All specimens on PE were captured in low traps baited with the softwood blend (monochamol, ipsenol, fuscumol, and fuscumol acetate plus UHR alpha-pinene and UHR ethanol).

Checklist of the Coleoptera of Prince Edward Island, Canada

The classification of the family-group taxa used in this checklist follows Bouchard et al. (2011), except for the Hydrophiloidea, which follows Short and Fikáĉek (2013) and the Aleocharinae that follows Klimaszewski et al. (2018). Synonyms and changes to the genus a species was included in proposed after the publication of Bousquet et al. (2013) are included in checklist (species or genus name indented). The order used is phylogenetic for superfamilies, families, and subfamilies starting with the accepted most basal-grade taxa, and is alphabetic for supertribes, tribes, and subtribes. Genera, subgenera, and species are listed alphabetically. The species included in this checklist are based on PE records contained in Bousquet et al. (2013), records published after that checklist, and new records included in this publication.

An asterisk [*] after a species name indicates that the taxon is Holarctic, a dagger [†] denotes an adventive species in North America, a double dagger [‡] indicates that the status is uncertain and that the species could be either Holarctic or adventive in North America. Species with a bullet point [●] after the name were recorded in this study; those that are also in bold are newly recorded for PE.
