Not illustrated. 1904 edition. Excerpt: ... and Karner. I collected it in numbers at Hamburg, Nassau, Salem, Cold Spring Harbor, Jamaica and Staten Island. Taken everywhere that collections are made in grass land, at least where blue grass occurs. In many localities it becomes at times aserious pest in grass land and it has also been recorded as a pest in wheat fields. Separated from scalaris by broader vertex. Uhler referred this species to New York, Maryland and Texas. It has been seldom noticed probably because of its limitation in food plant. I mention under this name a specimen from Cold Spring Harbor sent me by Mr H. G. Barber which differs so much in size and genitalia that it can not be safely referred to either s an e t u s Say or fasciatus Osborn but still the elytral picture and general facies relates it closely to these species. While additional specimens will in all probability show it to be distinct it seems undesirable to describe as new with but one sex and but one specimen of that in hand. As stated in my paper on "The Genus Scaphoideus" the real s a n c t u s of Say is in some doubt. Scaphoideus scalaris Van Duzee Scaphoideus scalaris VanDuzee. Ent.Am.6:51 Reported for Phoenicia by Mr Van Duzee. This species was described from specimens taken near New York city and Anglesea N. J. It is closely related to i m m i s t u s and either has been confused with that species or has been so rare as to escape notice. Described from specimen collected at Lancaster, Sep. 8 and has since been collected at Hamburg, Ithaca, Mosholu, Jamaica, Cold Spring Harbor and Poughkeepsie. A well marked species but so far noticed in very small numbers. Recorded for New York by Van Duzee and Osborn, definite records based on specimens in collection at Albany, Lancaster and more
