In July, 1949, a single specimen of a casebearing coleopterous larva was found feeding on a strawberry leaf in a plantation at the southeastern end of Grand Lake, Queen's County, N.B. During June and July, 1950, about a dozen larvae were found throughdut this area, and a greater number in plantations on both sides of Washademoak Lake, which is southeast and roughly parallel to Grand Lake and about ten miles distant. During 1951 the species was again collected in these areas, and was found in large numbers about 15 miles southeast of Washademoak Lake in the Belleisle watershed. Here the infestation was so great that in one instance 565 larvae were collected with a sweeping net on 100 feet of strawberry row, or an average of five larvae per plant.
