ABSTRACT:
A taxonomic study of the Coccinellidae of Louisiana was undertaken in 1965 to identify the species occurring in the state. Keys and descriptions are provided for the 6 subfamilies, 11 tribes, 27 genera, and 71 species recorded as occurring in the state. Of the species listed, 38 are reported as new. Distribution records by parish and dates of seasonal occurrences are given.

"The following is a list of Coccinellids collected principally by the writer in the vicinity of College Station and in Hidalgo county, Texas, during 1930, 1931, and 1932. Notes, as far as possible, are given on the habitat, host, and the date that each species was collected. Of the 64 species and varieties listed herein, 19 have not been heretofore reported from this state. The writer is indebted to Dr. E. A. Chapin for determining some of the species of Hyperaspis and Scymnus."

A study was conducted during the February to November periods of 2004 and 2005 to determine the seasonal presence and reproduction of lady beetle species on cotton, alfalfa, plus over 20 prevalent Texas High Plains weed species. Over the 2-year study period, a total of 221,209 plant sweeps yielded 27,058 lady beetle adults and 3,936 larvae.

The adult specimens represented a total of six different species with the convergent lady beetle, Hippodamia convergens Guerin-Meneville, easily representing over 80% of the overall population.

All of the American coccinellids which could be obtained in numbers and which showed a variable color-pattern were studied, viz, Hippodamini, Coccinellae, and Epilachnini, divisions employed by Casey (1899).
