Abstract

A new species of exotic ambrosia beetle, Ambrosiophilus peregrinus Smith and Cognato, likely native to Asia, is described after its establishment in the United States. This species was first detected in Cherokee County, Georgia in June 2013. Since its initial discovery, the species has been found in two neighboring counties in northern Georgia. A key is presented to the species of Ambrosiophilus Hulcr and Cognato occurring in North America.
