Araphe carolina (Herrich-Schaffer) is a little-known species that has been recorded "from North Carolina south to Florida, thence west through Tennessee to Arizona and Baja California" (Halstead, 1972). Froeschner (1944) characterized it as a "scarce species" in recording it from five counties in the Ozark Region of southern Missouri. The purpose of this note is to provide the first records of A. carolina in Illinois and incidentally to provide the first record of any largid bug in the state.
