NEW BRUNSWICK: Saint John Co.: Saint John , 9.VII.1902, 8.VII.1903, W. McIntosh, (2, NBM)   . NOVA SCOTIA: Lunenburg Co.: Chester , 17.VII.1968, B. Wright, (1, NSMC)   .

Nausibius clavicornis   is newly recorded in Atlantic Canada. Originally a Neotropical species it is now cosmopolitan. Originally subcorticolous (and also reported from old bees’ nests) in the field, it is now a pest of stored products, particularly raw or yellow-crystal sugar. It has also been reported from rice, dried apples, ginger, and cassia ( Thomas 1993).
