Abstract Three buprestid species, Actenodes acornis (Say, 1836), Dicerca asperata (Laporte et Gory, 1837), and Dicerca lepida LeConte, 1857, are newly recorded from Canada on the basis of a collection of 57 buprestid specimens taken from females of the crabronid wasp Cerceris fumipennis Say, 1837 in Rondeau Provincial Park, Chatham-Kent region, Ontario, in July 2004. Nine additional buprestid species were taken from wasps that were intercepted as they approached their nests, demonstrating the… Expand
The use of Cerceris fumipennis (Hymenoptera: Crabronidae) for surveying and monitoring emerald ash borer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) infestations in eastern North America
This wasp provides a unique opportunity to survey indigenous and nonindigenous buprestid diversity and the accessibility, sustainability, and productivity of C. fumipennis with respect to its application as a buPrestid surveying and monitoring tool. Expand
The Buprestidae (Coleoptera) of Minnesota, with a Discussion of the Emerald Ash Borer, Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire
Abstract The future impact of the invasive emerald ash borer (EAB), Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire (Coleoptera: Buprestidae), on native North American buprestids is still unknown. To determine how theExpand
Sampling Buprestidae (Coleoptera) in Washington state with Cerceris californica Cresson (Hymenoptera, Crabronidae)
The beetle-hunting habits of ground nesting wasps in the genus Cerceris Latreille have been recently exploited as a survey technique for exotic and native Buprestidae, particularly AgrilusExpand
Buprestidae Collected as Prey by the Solitary, Ground-Nesting Philanthine Wasp Cerceris fumipennis (Hymenoptera: Crabronidae) in North Carolina
Eight new state records and five new prey records for the wasp are here recorded, emphasizing the utility of C. fumipennis in documenting buprestid biodiversity and in detecting forest pests. Expand
Comparison of Buprestidae collected by Cerceris fumipennis (Hymenoptera: Crabronidae) with those collected by purple prism traps
Two nondestructive methods for monitoring metallic wood‐boring beetles are compared and it is found that a combination of both techniques may provide the most complete temporal coverage of buprestid activity in a given area. Expand
Observations of Cerceris fumipennis (Hymenoptera: Crabronidae) Phenology and Variation in Its Buprestid Prey in Louisiana
The results suggest that C. fumipennis is a feasible sampling tool and a useful addition to ongoing emerald ash borer surveys in the region and discusses evidence suggesting a portion of the regional C.fumip Dennis population is bivoltine. Expand
Collection of Emerald Ash Borer (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) by Cerceris fumipennis (Hymenoptera: Crabronidae) in North Carolina: Case Study at One Nesting Site
Until evidence to the contrary is available, this long activity period is best interpreted as the extended emergence of a single generation rather than as a partial second generation of wasps. Expand
Evaluating buprestid preference and sampling efficiency of the digger wasp, Cerceris fumipennis, using morphometric predictors
In-ground colonies of the native digger wasp, Cerceris fumipennis Say, were sampled over two years in four New York State counties to characterize prey range and evaluate beetle sampling efficiency by comparing collected beetles to historic county records and to identify limitations of wasp-mediated sampling in study areas.

Factors Associated With Diversity and Distribution of Buprestid Prey Captured by Foraging Cerceris fumipennis (Hymenoptera: Crabronidae).
This work illustrates how C. fumipennis can be utilized for general buprestid surveys in urban areas to better understand the distribution of this cryptic family. Expand

These represent the first prey records for C. fumipennis in BC and with the exception of P. drummondi are new prey recordsfor this wasp. Expand


Observations on the nesting of three species of Cerceris (Hymenoptera: Sphecidae).
Quantitative data obtained from the nests and provisioning activities of 3 species of Cerceris reveal 4 new genera and 5 new species of prey Chrysomelid prey and introduce a new prey family, Eucnemidae. Expand
Female size and nest defense in the digger wasp Cerceris fumipennis (Hymenoptera: Sphecidae: Philanthinae).
An aggregation of the philanthine wasp Cerceris fumipennis Say was observed during nest-founding from March 25-31, 1989, at the Archbold Biological Station, Florida, revealing frequent nest switching and nest usurpation. Expand
