Trogoderma  sp. 3

The brown hairy larvae of this species are more similar to Anthrenus  than to Trogoderma  . Trogoderma  sp. 3 adults are entirely black with posteriorly narrowed elytra. The species was abundant in one nest of A. annumbi  from Campo de Mayo ( Table 2). Emergence data from reared adults from nest 8 ( Table 2) was 10 -X-05 (116), 12 -X-05 (120), 13 -X-05 (78), 14 / 15 -X-05 (131), 17 -X-05 (14), 20 -X-05 (50), 23 -X-05 (18), 25 / 26 -X-05 (28), 30 -X-05 (10), 1 / 16 -XI-05 (20), 17 / 30 -XI-05 (47) [spring]. The species was also present in nests from Entre Ríos and Santa Fe ( Table 2); in the last locality it was also abundant in nests of other birds.
