Abstract

Ectobius lucidus (Hagenbach), a Palearctic cockroach, is reported for the first time from North America. Characters are given to distinguish it from other species of the genus known from eastern North America. Photographs of the adult male and female, and nymphs are provided and contrasted with photographs of adults of other Ectobius species occurring in North America. Its seasonal history and habits are summarized based on field observations, and additional distribution records of other Ectobius species established in eastern North America are listed and mapped.
