Clypastrea fuscum Harold  

NOVA SCOTIA: Queens County: Kejimkujik National Park , 15 August 2001 & 5 September 2001, 2 specimens, B. Wright, NSMC   .

Recorded New York and Michigan by Downie and Arnett (1996) who also list Québec as part this species’ range. Laplante et al. (1991), however, which is a much more detailed compendium of the province’s fauna, does not include it nor does Campbell (1991). Hence this specimen from Nova Scotia should be considered the first record of

this species in Canada. In Nova Scotia brushed from the bark of trees in a deciduous ( Acer spp.   , Quercus rubra   L., and Betula spp.   ) forest.
