Phymatodes testaceus (Linnaeus, 1758)  

Webster et al. (2009) reported Phymatodes testaceus   from New Brunswick based on a series of specimens collected from Pleasantfield in Queens Co. There are no towns with this name in Queens Co., New Brunswick. The original Forest Insect and Disease Survey slip (at AFC) was examined and Pleasantfield is actually in Queens Co., Nova Scotia, indicating that these specimens had been mislabeled. Phymatodes testaceus   is accordingly removed from the faunal list of New Brunswick.
