Preview not available

Abstract

Ataxia brunnea Champlain and Knull, Mecas rotundicollis (Thomson), Tetraopes femoratus LeConte and Tetraopes texanus Horn (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) are reported for the first time from the Black Belt Prairie of Mississippi and Alabama. The latter species is also reported from the Jackson Prairie in Mississippi. These records represent a disjunction from their previously known distributions in the Great Plains and mid-western states. Asclepias viridis Walter is reported as the likely host of both T. femoratus and T. texanus in the Black Belt Prairie.
