Abstract

Two exotic species of Xyleborus (Coleoptera: Scolytidae) of Asian origin have recently been detected in the United States. Xyleborus pelliculosus Eichhoff has been collected in Pennsylvania and Maryland, and X. atratus Eichhoff from Tennessee, Georgia, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia. Descriptions of both species and a revised, illustrated key to members of the genus Xyleborus in eastern North America are presented. An explanation is proposed for the large numbers of recent introductions of exotic ambrosia beetles from eastern Asia into eastern North America.

Résumé

Deux espèces exotiques de Xyleborus (Coleoptera : Scolytidae) d’origine asiatique ont récemment été détectées aux États-Unis. Xyleborus pelliculosus Eichhoff a été capturée en Pennsylvanie et au Maryland, et X. atratus Eichhoff au Tennessee, en Georgie, au Maryland, en Virginie et en Virginie occidentale. Nous décrivons ici ces deux espèces et nous présentons une clé révisée et illustrée des membres du genre Xyleborus dans l’est de l’Amérique de Nord. Nous proposons une explication pour le grand nombre d’introductions récentes dans l’est de l’Amérique du Nord de scolytes du bois exotiques provenant de l’est de l’Asie.
