Abstract

On 17 June 2014, large aggregations of Epicauta polingi Werner 1943 (Coleóptera: Meloidae) were observed feeding on the leaves and stems of mountain laurel, Sophora secundiflora (Ortega) Lag. ex DC.; and guajillo, Acacia berlandieri Benth. (Fabaceae). After examination of the existing literature it was determined that these two plants represented new host records for E. polingi.
