Methods for collecting the larval and post larval stages of Neoschöngastia americana (Hirst) were evaluated. Unengorged larvae were collected from the field using a modified Cockings light trap. Adults were recovered from range soil in the winter at depths up to 18 in. by flotation. This is the first record of adult collection from the field and establishes the adult as an overwintering stage in Missouri.
