Collection and habitat data
Hanley and Goodrich (1995b)considered Oxyporus kitelyi to have a relatively narrow range of host species. Adults have been reported from Suillus sp. (Boletaceae) from Massachusetts and Georgia (Campbell 1978) and Armillaria mellea (Tricholomataceae) (Hanley and Goodrich 1995b). In New Brunswick, adults were found on Boletus sp. mushrooms (Boletaceae), Pholiota sp. (Cortinariaceae) at the base of standing dead American beech (Fagus grandifolia Ehrh.), and inside a large orange-gilled mushroom species (probably Gymnopilus spectabilis (Cortinariacae)) near bases of dead standing American beech trees or on rotten beech logs. Adults occurred in tunnels within the caps of the orange-gilled mushroom species. This species was collected during August and September.
Distribution in Canada and Alaska
QC, NB (Campbell 1978). Oxyporus kiteleyi was listed as occurring in New Brunswick by Majka et al. (2011) without any supporting references or data. Here, we provide the first documented records from New Brunswick.
