Abstract The beetle family Colydiidae in the Maritime Provinces of Canada and in Maine in the United States is surveyed. Two species, Lasconotus borealis Horn and Synchita fuliginosa Melsheimer, are newly recorded from Nova Scotia. Records of L. borealis in New Brunswick are also reported, as are those of S. fuliginosa from Maine. The distribution and bionomics of both species are discussed. The fauna is briefly evaluated in the context of saproxylic beetles in general, and in particular in… 
The Eucnemidae (Coleoptera) of the Maritime Provinces of Canada: new records, observations on composition and zoogeography, and comments on the rarity of saproxylic beetles
TLDR
The history of forest management in the Maritime Provinces is such as to have had a major impact on the composition and structure hardwood forests, and hence potentially on insects such as eucnemids which are reliant on these hosts, Consequently further research is urged in order to better ascertain their status, and to develop appropriate conservation measures for these important indicator species of diverse forest structure.
New Coleoptera records from New Brunswick, Canada: Tenebrionidae and Zopheridae
TLDR
Thirteen species of Tenebrionidae are newly reported for New Brunswick, Canada, and two species of Zopheridae, Bitoma crenata Fabricius and Synchita fuliginosa Melsheimer, are newly recorded, bringing the number of species known from the province to four.

Saproxylic beetle (Coleoptera) communities and forest management practices in coniferous stands in southwest Nova Scotia, Canada
TLDR
Investigation of relationships between forest stand age, silvicultural treatment, dead wood, and invertebrate biodiversity, using saproxylic beetles as an indicator group shows that both stand age and harvest treatment had an effect on species richness and species composition.
History of Coleoptera collecting in New Brunswick, Canada: advancing our knowledge of the Coleoptera fauna in the early 21st century
TLDR
Among these specimens are the first occurrences of a number of adventive species to the Maritime provinces: Quedius mesomelinus (Marsham) (Staphylinidae) (Majka and Smetana 2007), Attagenus unicolor japonicas Reitter (Dermestidae) and others, including many that were the first records for New Brunswick and the region.

TLDR
There are 4 larval stadia in the life cycle of Lasconotus subcostulatus Kraus, and the third instar is very aggressive and wide ranging in its feeding habits, killing and eating any Ips larvae or unpigmented pupae encountered.
