Luperodes Thorasicus, a small, dark beetle formerly not known to occur in numbers sufficient to cause any economic concern was found in an orchard in the central part of Pennsylvania doing damage to the foliage of peach, apple and plum, and damaging slightly the fruit of apple. The owner of the orchard reported that the insect had been present for three or four years, and was increasing in numbers. A survey of the surroundings of the orchard showed the insect to be present on butternut (Juglans cinerea), and cultivated blackberries. Since the regular apple spray schedule was fairly closely followed in this orchard it may be that should this beetle increase it might become a serious pest in our orchards. The life history of the insect is not known.
