Omophoita albicollis
Boris Büche has noted a population of Omophoita albicollis in southern Florida with thus far 19 records on iNaturalist spanning 4 years. 4 of these records were cross-posted here to BugGuide but had been lumped under the native O. cyanipennis - most until yesterday.

Aptesis nigrocincta and hosts

Aptesis nigrocincta: introduced biological control, reported in northeastern US and eastern Canada.

Hoplocampa testudinea: introduced garden pest originally from Europe.

Caliroa cerasi: introduced garden pest originally from Europe and western Asia.

First North American record of this genus.

Good question
Don Chandler told me that he checked the resources and there was no mention of Bootanomyia from NA. It's possible that it's always been here. Here's a research article that lists it as occurring in Europe, Australia and Japan.

Is it necessarily nonnative
as opposed to just not detected in North America before? Chalcidoids are so poorly known. Seems hard to say without a species level ID.

Looks -
like this cockroach is now established in California? At least two BG records from the SF Bay Area over the course of years...

Prosevania fuscipes is documented as introduced in the US, and we finally have images sorted out from those previously left at family.

It might also be useful to replace "Cockroach Egg Parasitoid Wasp" for Evania appendigaster with "Blue-eyed Ensign Wasp" since the former is also a general term for the family.

Two introduced specimens of Delta
Two specimens of Delta esuriens (Okinawa Mud Wasp) are now verified from Florida (one 2018, the other 2020).

Another argid

Arcola malloi = Macrorrhinia endonephele

Vespa mandarinia
A 10 year old girl posted images of an Asian Giant Hornet (aka "murder hornet") for a school project:

Other hornets subsequently found nearby were tracked by radio collars. This led to the discovery and eradication of the first known nest in the US. She got an A.

the entry should read as follows:
No common name, [url=node/view/1621656][i]Gonocephalum sericeum[/i][/url]. From w Palaearctic, 1980

not yet recorded in NA, it seems

i'll try to find out more about its status

Stigmella multispicata
Details on guide page.

No common name, [url=node/view/1568771][i]Gondwanocrypticus pictus[/i][/url]. From S. America, 1954

how did this long-established bug fail to show up earlier on BG?

Toxonevra muliebris (Diptera: Pallopteridae)
This photo is the first record I know of from the New World. I emailed the submitter to make sure it really was taken here. It is from an area where immigrant insects tend to arrive (via the major ports).

Philonthus sanguinolentus

Microplax albofasciata

Palaearctic (Mediterranean north to Channel Is. & Germany)


Phytomyza krygeri

Eulimnadia geayi
Eulimnadia geayi (Branchiopoda: Diplostraca: Spinicaudata: Limnadiidae)

Introduced or discovered?
How can you tell an introduction from a new discovery of an existing population? Do these get transported by humans a lot?

Muddy Plane Hypothesis
There is no official declaration yet, since I only recently discovered the population. Chris Roberts will take care of such thing eventually. He has samples and confirmed the ID. There is no doubt that it was introduced from South America, though. It was not found during a recent extensive survey of NM large branchiopods(1). Click the GPS coordinates on the main page. The linked Google Map shows that the population is across the street from Kirtland AFB's runway tarmac. One can often see C-17 Globemasters and V-22 Ospreys parked there for service right next door. Both of these aircraft are able to land at dirt airfields and are within range of northern South America where the species is from and USAF has business. Clam shrimp are adapted specifically to vernal/ephemeral pools. As such, their eggs can remain dormant for years in dry soil. Most likely, the population originated from dirt washed off the landing gear of planes on the tarmac. I have been investigating other vernal pools on base, though, to see if they've spread.

Gilpinia frutetorum

Phortica variegata (Diptera, Drosophilidae)
The unidentified Phortica variegata-like species from the Northeast is apparently P. variegata(1) itself. David Grimaldi, an expert on the family, collected specimens in New York in 2014. I assume all the similar flies from nearby states are the same species. The oldest record I know of is the BugGuide photo from 2011.

This fly is native to Europe. Asian records might be variegata or an undescribed relative.

Loewia foeda
Loewia foeda(1), native to Europe, first American record from Long Island in 1958.
