3. Dalotia coriaria (Kraatz) 

(For diagnosis, illustrations and literature reviews, see Klimaszewski et al. 2007, Gouix and Klimaszewski 2007).

CANADA. British Columbia: Vancouver, Stanley Park, Hollow Tree, CWH (49°18΄22˝N, 123°09΄11˝W), Funnel trap 2, 10.VII-31.VII.2007, J.A. McLean, A. Li, J. Derhousoff ( UBC) 1 male.

Dalotia coriaria  is a cosmopolitan species that is adventive in many parts of the world including Europe, east Africa, Madagascar, New Zealand, Galapagos Islands (Benick and Lohse 1974; Pace 1999; Sivasubramaniam et al. 1997; Klimaszewski and Peck 1998), and North America ( Klimaszewski et al. 2007). In Canada it has previously been recorded from Ontario and Alberta ( Klimaszewski et al. 2007, Gouix and Klimaszewski 2007), and in the United States from California, Florida, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New Jersey and New York ( Moore and Legner 1975; Muona 1984; Frank 1980; Gusarov 2003). This species is here newly recorded from British Columbia. Th e isolated and disjunctive distribution of D. coriaria  in Canada represents probably three independent introduction events.
