The Coccinellidae (Coleoptera) of America North of Mexico
By Robert D. Gordon
Journal of the New York Entomological Society, Vol. 93, No. 1, 1985
912 pages

Slightly dated with regard to status of imported species (1985 - Harmonia axyridis establishment listed as questionable - oh, were it true!), but still a great comprehensive work covering all of lower 48, with detailed line drawings, keys to all species, and distribution maps.

Coleomegilla maculata (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) is a species complex.

Krafsur, E.S. and J.J. Obrycki. 2000. Coleomegilla maculata (Coleoptera: Coccinellidae) is a species complex. Annals of the Entomological Society of America 93(5): 1156-1161.

Abstract

Coleomegilla maculata De Geer is an abundant, widely distributed, New World polyphagous lady beetle. High levels of variation at 14 polymorphic allozyme loci were used to examine breeding structure of populations from New England, Iowa, south Texas, and Honduras. Analysis of variance of gene frequencies and F-statistics showed high levels of gene flow within each region and between the Texan and northern United States populations, but negligible rates of gene flow between these and the Honduran populations.

Abstract

There is interest in introducing the midwestern subspecies of Coleomegilla maculata (DeGeer), C. m. lengi Timberlake, as a biological control agent for augmentation programs in Florida. The Division of Plant Industry (DPI) of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services has prohibited the release of [i]C.
