Three species of aquatic beetle, Peltodytes simplex (LeConte) (Haliplidae), Agabus oblongulus Fall (Dytiscidae) (both from southern British Columbia) and Ilybius oblitus Sharp (Dytiscidae) (from southern Ontario) are confirmed as members of the Canadian fauna based on specimens deposited in the Spencer Entomological Museum at the University of British Columbia.
