Hoplistoscelis sordidus is recorded for the first time from Canada. The distribution of the species, its establishment in Canada, and its bionomics are discussed. Characters are given that distinguish Hoplistoscelis from all other eastern Canadian genera of Nabinae. The potential role of the genus as a biological control agent is also briefly outlined.
