A population of Hemileuca maia species complex was observed feeding on Menyanthes trifoliata and Betula pumila. This confirms the presence of a second population of these moths using M. trifoliata in Wisconsin, and is only the fourth known locality for such populations. This is the first report of Hemileuca feeding on B. pumila in Wisconsin. The Hemileuca populations of the Great Lakes region are discussed, and the first map of the distribution of Hemileuca in Wisconsin is provided.
