The chilocorine coccinellid Brumoides septentrionis davisi (Leng) is an infrequently collected lady beetle whose broad distribution in eastern North America has been mapped; few specific localities, however, have been published. Despite a known association with pines, the Pinus species on which it is found have not been recorded. Historical locality data are provided based on specimens in five museum collections, and new records from recent field work are presented. This coccinellid’s plant and habitat associations are discussed. Its populations apparently have declined in the Northeast in recent years. Certain scale insects probably serve as prey.
Keywords: Brumoides septentrionis davisi, coccinellids, insect distribution, pine barrens.
