Abstract:This small black nitidulid beetle was probably introduced into this country from Europe quite recently. The adults feed in the blossoms of a variety of plants, including strawberry. It seems doubtful that they cause any injury to the latter. They breed only in Linaria vulgaris. As far as is known there is only one generation a year.
