Abstract: The European oak borer, Agrilus sulcicollis Lacordaire, was first reported in North America in Ontario in 2008 and then in Michigan and New York in 2009 (Haack et al. 2009, Jendek and Grebennikov 2009). Subsequent examination of previously unidentified specimens in Canadian and U.S. museums and personal collections found A. sulcicollis individuals dating from 1995 in Canada and 2003 in the U.S. Specimens have been collected from English oak (Quercus robur) in the U.S. and red oak (Q. rubra) in Canada.
