Entomological Note


We report first records for three species of Carpophilinae (Coleoptera: Nitidulidae), two for the province of Quebec (Caplothorax lugubris and Carpophilus corticinus), a third species (Carpophilus marginatus) being a first report for Canada. These beetles were trapped while conducting population assessments of oak wilt vectors and in amateur collections. Biological information and a brief description of the records including distribution data in Quebec for the three species are presented.
