Euspilotus rossi (Wenzel, 1939)** – Wikispecies link – Pensoft Profile
New Brunswick, Queens Co., Rees near Grand Lake, 46.0016°N, 65.9466°W, 29.V.2007, S. Makepeace & R. Webster, in barred owl nest in an artificial nest box (2, CNC, RWC).
Collection and habitat data
. This species was reported from flicker (Colaptes auratus L.) nests by Kovarik and Caterino (2001). The specimens from New Brunswick were found in nest material of a barred owl nest with chicks. Euspilotus rossi was found in only one of 23 barred owl nests sampled (Webster and Makepeace, unpublished data), suggesting that this is not the usual habitat for this species. The two adults were collected in late May.
Distribution in Canada and Alaska
ON, QC, NB (Bousquet and Laplante 2006). Only a few specimens of this rare species are known from Canada (Bousquet and Laplante 2006).
