Cyclocephala lurida Bland (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) is a dynastine scarab beetle previously unknown from Wisconsin. Two specimens, one male and one female, were found on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus. A third specimen was recovered from a blacklight trap in southwestern Wisconsin. Although establishment in the state remains open to question, this species is of potential economic concern as larvae are capable of causing significant damage to lawns, turfgrass, and crops.
