    Description

    The nitidulid Stelidota ferruginea Reitter was reared from damaged acorns of laurel oak, Quercus laurifolia Michx., and live oak, Q. virginiana Mill., collected in Sarasota County, Florida. This sap beetle has been reared in the laboratory solely on northern red oak, Q. rubra, acorns for over 3 years (27 + generations) and can breed in viable or nonviable acorns. In the laboratory, S. ferruginea can develop in the seeds of several species of trees. New information on the biology of S. ferruginea is presented.
