Latridiidae  

Corticarina cavicollis (Mannerheim)   is recorded in Canada from British Columbia, Ontario, Québec, and Nova Scotia ( Bousquet 1991). Adults and larvae in the Latridiidae   feed on the conidia of fungi and Myxomycetes, particularly fungi in the classes Phycomycetes, Deuteromycetes and Ascomycetes ( Andrews 2002). The present report provides the first record of C. cavicollis   from a bird's nest, however, related species in the Corticariinae   such as Corticaria elongata (Gyllenhal)   , C. pubescens (Gyllenhal)   , Cortinicara gibbosa (Herbst)   ( Hicks 1962, 1971), and Corticarina fuscula (Gyllenhal)   (W. Rücker, pers. com.) have previously been found in bird's nests.
