Amblycerus schwarzi Kingsolver (Coleoptera: Bruchidae) recorded new for North America

  • In 1986, L. Leblanc collected two females of Amblycerus schwarzi in Watson's Hammock, Big Pine Key, Florida, but they remained unidentified until Stewart Peck reared 10 specimens including males and matching females from the drupaceous fruits of Hippomane mancinella L. (manchineel) (Euphorbiaceae) from Big Pine Key. One collection of A. schwarzi from Baracoa, Oriente Prov., Cuba, part of the original type series, was also reared from this host (Kingsolver, 1970:478).
