Harmonia quadripunctata Pontoppidan  

NEW BRUNSWICK: Westmorland County: Moncton, 1965 – 71, C.G. Majka, CGMC.

This Palearctic species was established in the United States as early as 1924 and is now found in New York and New Jersey ( Vandenberg 1990). The specimen collected in New Brunswick (specific date not recorded) apparently represents an accidental conveyance of this species by road, rail, or air to Moncton, a major transportation hub. There is no evidence that the species has become established; consequently it is not included as part of the region’s fauna.
