The origins and status of Chrysolina staphylaea (Linnaeus), first recorded in North America in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada in 1897, is reviewed. Additional records from Nova Scotia and Newfoundland are reported which establish that the species is more widely distributed than has hitherto been known. The status of the species on the continent is discussed, as are possible modes of introduction, dispersal, and potential host plants.
