2 Diplerygia Notiohia In Memorium - Lloyd Putnam Mr. Lloyd Putnam passed away in Saskatoon on May 8, 2001 at the age of 88. Lloyd was employed with the Dominion Entomological Laboratory in Saskatoon from 1937 tol 942. Rejoined the army in 1942 and was wounded in the invasion of Normandy. Lloyd returned to his former job in 1946, where he became involved in grasshopper research for years and then worked on insect pests of oilseed crops. Lloyd was one of the few who foresaw possible outbreaks of bertha armyworm as the acreage of canola spread in late 1960 s, When a major outbreak of bertha armyworm occurred in 1971, Lloyd s work was crucial in obtaining emergency registration for the insecticide Lannate. Records show that in 1971, 57-90% of all rapeseed fields were infested and 75-90% of all infested areas were sprayed. Thanks to Lloyd s foresight, most of the 1971 crop was saved and all ofthe 1972 crop was protected. By 1973, bertha armyworm populations declined, in part due to high rates of parasitism. Lloyd retired from the AAFC Saskatoon Research Centre in Re served as the first and fourth president of the Entomological Society of Saskatchewan. New Saskatchewan Insect Records (Ronald R. Hooper) LEPIDOPTERA GELECHIIDAE - Dichomeris costarujoella (Cham.). Two specimens taken by Ronald Hooper at Fort Qu Appelle on June 07, It was formerly taken west to Riding Mountains, Manitoba. The food plant is Black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia hirla). GEOMETRIDAE - Therajuniperara L. One specimen taken at Regina, Saskatchewan by Keith Roney on October 30, This is an introduced pest from Europe that feeds on cedars and juniper. It was formerly reported to have spread west to Ontario. Juniper was growing in the area where it was collected. HESPERIIDAE - Hesperia dacotae (Dakota Skipper). Three males were collected as they perched on top of purple coneflowers (Echinacea angustifolia) on an ungrazed prairie hilltop near Oxbow, Saskatchewan on July 19, This species was previously taken west to Brandon, Manitoba, and North Dakota. The species is becoming scarce in much of its range; the area where it occurs needs to be protected from all types of summer and winter recreational vehicles and activity. NOCTUlDAF - rozrnani.. One specimen collected by Dr. Daniel Glaeske at St. Victor, Saskatchewan on July It was previously collected west to Miami, Manitoba. TORTRICIDAE - Sparganothis mi eanna (WIsm.).

It was previously collected west to Lake Superior and North Dakota. CERAMBYCIDAE - Ropalopus sanguinicollis (Horn). One specimen collected by Ronald 1-looper along ash woods near Fort QuAppelle on July 04, This handsome long-homed beetle has a red thorax. It was formerly collected west to Manitoba.

17 APPENDIX C Dear Colleagues: I am writing about a new initiative undertaken by the Entomological Society of Canada to develop a schedule of annual meetings five years in advance. Increasingly in the last few years, the ESC has received requests from other national societies to hold joint meetings. It is the feeling of the ESC Board that an occasional joint meeting with another society could significantly benefit members of both societies. One of the impediments to planning these meetings is the lack of confirmed locations and host societies beyond two years. It is felt that a five-year schedule is needed to better prepare and facilitate for jomt meetings. The ESC has traditionally had meetings that cycle from west to east across Canada among the seven regional entomological societies. Our next two meetings are in Ontario (2001) and Manitoba (2002). Although this pattern generally has been followed, there has been no rigid, seven to eight year pattern of locations and host societies. Therefore 1 am writing to all of the societies for their comment on this initiative and input. I would like to develop a schedule of meetings at this point to the year Thus as a start I would like to identify which host regional societies would be willing to host the ESC meeting for 2003, 2004, 2005 and As the regional director of your regional society, I ask that you discuss this request with your society executive and let me know if your society might be interested in hosting a meeting within the next five years. As with most new initiatives, there are bound to be a few wrinkles or things we didn t think of. My concept is to have a five-year schedule of meetings in place so that when the ESC is approached by another society (or vice versa> that we can begin to explore a proper time and location for a joint meeting. A two-year schedule is too short and often host cities have to be chosen and hotels booked two years in advance. This leaves no flexibility. Of course, the regional society ultimately makes the decision of whether or not they are willing and able to host a joint meeting. I would welcome your thoughts, suggestions or criticisms on this initiative. As Red Green says, we re all in this together.
