Abstract

Scrobiger splendidus (Newman) was observed ovipositing on, and emerging from, the nest of a native bee {Hylaeus sp.) at Indooroopilly, SE Queensland. Based on published accounts of a North American clerid exhibiting similar behaviour, it is likely that S. splendidus is a predator of Hylaeus spp. in Australia. This is the first evidence of apivorous habits for a native Australian clerid beetle.
