Colopterus posticus (Erichson), a nitidulid beetle new to the United States

, : Colopterus posticus (Erichson), a nitidulid beetle new to the United States. Florida Entomologist, 721: 89-90

The nitidulid Colopterus posticus was recorded from the USA for the first time. It was collected from various fruits, including fallen loquat (Eriobotrya japonica), atemoya (Annona cherimola X A. squamosa) and jack fruit and flowers, including Philodendron selloum, in Florida in 1987. The morphology of the pest is briefly described. The nitidulid is a tropical New World species ranging from Mexico to Brazil and Peru.
