Abstract

Insects were swept from the foliage of 3 species of Ericaceae, namely: Chamadaphne calyculata, Ledum groenlandicum and vaccininm macrocarpon, found in one or more of 7 sites: 5 in Wisconsin, 2 in Illinois. Eight orders, 7 families and an estimated 196-242 species were collected. Franklin, Judd, Phipps and Reader in their earlier findings listed many of these. Each taxon was placed into one of 4 categories as follows: 50 direct associates, insects using the plant(s) for some purpose; 35 indirect associates, insect parasites and predators of direct associates; 22 non-associates or visitors, merely present; and 15 remained uncategorized.
