Eleodes tricostatus (Say) was discovered in oak and pine barrens in west central Wisconsin. This represents the first record of a species of Eleodes Eschscholtz east of the Mississippi River. Our observations indicate that E. tricostatus (Say) adults require a delicate balance of open habitat with exposed sandy soils in close proximity to shrub or tree cover making them sensitive to management activities and weather-related effects that alter vegetation.
