Material examined.

New Brunswick, Queens Co., Cranberry Lake P.N.A, 46.1125°N, 65.6075°W, 18.VI.2009, 25.VI.2009, R. Webster & M.-A. Giguère, old red oak forest, on foliage of red oak (3, AFC).

Collection and habitat data.

Larval hosts include Diospyros virginiana   L., American beech ( Fagus grandifolia   Ehrh.), honey locust ( Gleditsia triacanthos   L.), and white oak ( Quercus alba   L.) ( Nelson et al. 2008). Fagus grandifolia   is the only known host species that occurs in New Brunswick, although other Quercus   sp. such as Q. rubra   (red oak) occur in the province. Adults from New Brunswick were collected from foliage of Q. rubra   , a probable host of A. crinicornis   in the province.

Distribution in Canada and Alaska.
