Abstract

Opatroides punctulatus Brullé, 1832 (Coleoptera; Tenebrionidae; Opatrini), is reported established for the first time in the New World in California near Sacramento. A key to distinguish Opatroides from species of similar genera is provided, with images and a brief diagnosis of O. punctulatus. The potential spread and pest status of the beetle should be monitored.
