On 4 August, 2005 a male Thyrateles procax (Cresson) (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae) emerged from a pupa of Vanessa virginiensis (Drury) (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae) which was contained within a screened cage in Cook County, MN. This is the first published record of Vanessa virginiensis as a host of Thyrateles procax. Adults of T. procax appear to be rare, as only two old records (both males) are known from Minnesota (University of Minnesota, Insect Collection)
