Hippodamia convergens Guérin­Méneville 

NOVA SCOTIA: Halifax County: Halifax, 26 June 2001, C.G. Majka, CGMC.

Newly recorded in Nova Scotia. Found throughout almost the entirety of the United States north to central Maine ( Gordon 1985); in Canada found from British Columbia to New Brunswick ( McNamara 1991). The specimen collected in Halifax was found along the railway tracks suggesting the possibility it may have been brought to the province by rail. Specimens of H. convergens  are also sold as a biocontrol agent by garden centers, another possible origin of this specimen.
