Abstract

New geographic records are reported from the northeastern United States for four species of lady beetles (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae). Delphastus pusillus (LeConte, 1852) is newly reported from the states of Maine and New Hampshire, while Nephus ornatus naviculatus (Casey, 1899), Hyperaspidius transfugatus Casey, 1899, and Hyperaspis brunnescens Dobzhansky, 1941 are newly reported for New Hampshire. The new records represent modest range extensions for these species. The records improve fundamental knowledge about insect communities in the northeastern United States, but additional sampling is needed to ascertain the extent of their distributions and to determine prey associations for these species in this region.
