collection, are strongly in favor of the belief that it di not
reach this locality before the, last twelve months. Three assistant entomologists of the ..turel History Sufvey, w,,orhing respectively
in northern, central, a2i southern Illinois, have not taken specimens to date. Hence, alth.uh present, it ic still scarce and not
widely spread in the State.
'AL In order to determine the extent to which this spec es may have
spread into the Middle States. lette's '-ere sent to untomologists in Kentucky, Iow-a, Kansas, M.isouri, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan,
and Ohio. To date it is not known from the first five States named, even though Herrick (Manual of Injurious Insects,1925, p.270) says,
"It is now distributed over mch the same territory as Casparaei
except that it has not reached California." The species is recorded
from Indiana, Michigan, and Ohio. Prof. Pettit ventured to state
that it first entered Michigan from Ohio seven or eight years ago, or about 1916. M'r. Lietz, Indiara, kindly furnished records which show that this betle occurred in Noble County in the northeastern corner of that State in 1920, and at Cambridge City, Wayne County,
near the Ohio borderr cast of Indianapolis in the same year.
Records for Ohio indicate its presence there earlier and also
more widely spread then in Indiana and Michigan. Fink (Cornell
Univ. Agr. Fxnp. Sta. Bul. 331,1913) sumarized its distribution
up to that time, showing that it had spread "as far -mest as Ohio,
and as far north as to include the Nigara peninsula." T. L. Guyton
(Ohio Agr. Exp, Sta. Mo. Dul., Vol. IV, p. 199,1919) indicates
that it was not at all common in that year. The present writer did.
not find it about Marietta, Ohio, during the seasons of 1919,1920,
and 1921, during which years som time was given to asparagas beetles.
A. E. Miller, in his study of truck-crop insects at Chillicothe, Ohio, from 1922 to 1925, found two or three individuals in 1923.
Whereas it 7as absent or rare in southern Ohio, Miller informed the
1"riter that it had b en rep + I 1lrifre
writer that it had been reorted commonly therctofore from the
northern part of the State.
According to Fink, 1. c., this beetle was first observed near
Baltimore in 1gs1, and spread north into Canada and into
Delawqare, Pennsylvania, N1e"' Jersey, Newv York,Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts. and Me o. It seems that the revailine
westerly winds operated to prevent its dissemination directly westward, causing it to take a northwestward, north,or northeastrard
direction. When it reached the Great Lakes it probably crept along
their southern shores and has 7one at let to the Chicago ara at present. This is shown by the fact that most of the records are for the northern arts of Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, and for southern Midchigan. From that barrier line the species se ms to be spreading southward and -estward, ap'raring again to be deflected from a duc west direction by the ,cst minds of this region. When it has pone
beyond the southern border of Lake Mich igan it will presubly spread northward more promptly into Wisconsin and otter north"estern States.
The paths over which insects of economic imacrtance spread into new
territory, and the factors determining these routes, r st be regaded as of much value. Here is a species in process of spread
