Schiefer, T.L. 1998. Disjunct distribution of Cerambycidae (Coleoptera) in the black belt prairie and Jackson prairie in Mississippi and Alabama. Coleopterists Bulletin 52(3): 278-284.

Abstract

Ataxia brunnea Champlain and Knull,
Mecas rotundicollis (Thomson),
Tetraopes femoratus LeConte and
Tetraopes texanus Horn (Coleoptera: Cerambycidae) are reported for the first time from the Black Belt Prairie of Mississippi and Alabama.

The latter species is also reported from the Jackson Prairie in Mississippi.

These records represent a disjunction from their previously known distributions in the Great Plains and mid-western states.

Asclepias viridis Walter is reported as the likely host of both T. femoratus and T. texanus in the Black Belt Prairie.
