Nelson, G.H., D.S. Verity & R.L. Westcott. 1981. Additional notes on the biology and distribution of Buprestidae (Coleoptera) of North America. Coleopterists Bulletin 35(2): 129-151.

Abstract

New biological and/or geographical distribution data are given for 203 species of Buprestidae in the following genera: Acmaeodera, Acmaeoderopsis, Actenodes, Agaeocera, Agrilus, Anambodera, Anthaxia, Brachys, Buprestis, Chalcophora, Chalcophorella, Chrysobothris, Cinyra, Dicerca, Eupristocerus, Leiopleura, Mastogenius, Melanophila, Nanularia, Pachyschelus, Poecilonota, Polycesta, Ptosima, Taphrocerus, Trachykele, Trichinorhipis, Tyndaris, and Xenorhipis.

A discussion of variation and habitat is presented for Anthaxia hatchi Barr. The genus Leiopleura [L. otero (Fisher)] is recorded from the USA for the first time, distinguished from related genera in this country, and figured. The only known host for Trichinorhipis knulli Barr is recorded along with data on its biology and variation.
