Naemia seriata seriata Melsheimer  

NOVA SCOTIA: Annapolis County: Annapolis Royal, 1 August 1984, B. Wright & L. Morris, 17 specimens, NSMC; Granville Ferry, 30 June 2002 & 6 August 2005, C.G. Majka, 13 specimens, CGMC; Annapolis Royal, 7 August 2005, C.G. Majka, CGMC, 4 specimens; Kings County: Avonport, 9 September 2002, C. Sheffield, 3 specimens, ACNS; Shelburne County: Baker’s Flats: Cape Sable Island, 16 August 1984, L. Morris, NSMC.

Newly recorded in Nova Scotia and Canada as a whole. Found on the Atlantic and Gulf coasts from southern Maine ( Dearborn and Donahue 1993) and Rhode Island to Texas and thence south to Central America and the Antilles ( Gordon 1985). The Nova Scotia population, found in salt marshes in southern portions of the province, is significantly disjunct from the remainder of the range of the species. Naemia   , like the closely related genus Coleomegilla Timberlake   , is one of the few genera of coccinellids that can feed largely, or even exclusively, on pollen (N. Vandenberg, pers. com.).
