Annotated Checklist of the Buprestidae (Coleoptera) from Louisiana
© 2018 Coleopterists Society. All rights reserved. We report 110 species of Buprestidae from the state of Louisiana, 103 species based on 5,047 specimens examined and seven from previous literature records. Fifteen new state records are reported, including the first published records of Agrilus planipennis Fairmaire, 1888 (emerald ash borer), which is now established in the northern parishes of the state. Two new state records are based on specimens taken during biomonitoring surveys using the buprestid specialist wasp Cerceris fumipennis (Say, 1837). Potential larval and host plants of buprestid species in Louisiana and collection date ranges of specimens examined are provided.
