Trogoderma  sp. 2

Adults have an orange prothorax, suggestive of Trogoderma ruficollis Reitter, 1880  from Brazil (original description not available). The larva is light orange and flattened. It is more common under ritidomes of Eucalyptus  at Campo de Mayo ( Table 3). Two adults also emerged from a mud nest of Sceliphron fistularium Dahlbom  ( Hymenoptera  : Sphecidae  ) build around a twig on the underside of nest # 4 (7 -V-05), which was also occupied by Camponotus bonariensis  hibernating inside the open and empty cells. Fritz & Genise (1980) mention a larva of Dermestidae  found inside nests of Sceliphron  from Entre Ríos (Río Mocoretá) and feeding on dead spiders.
