Majka and Klimaszewski (2010) surveyed the Aleocharinae fauna of the Maritime Provinces of Canada, reporting that 203 species were known in the region. They also added 16 new provincial records from the region. Inadvertently, they neglected to provide new provincial records of three species that were indicated as occurring in Nova Scotia in Table 1 (pp. 23-33) of their results. This omission is rectified below wherein Gyrophaena modesta Casey, Gyrophaena subnitens Casey, and Placusa vaga Casey are all newly recorded as occurring in Nova Scotia. Klimaszewski et al. (2010, pp. 77) also erroneously reported Tachyporus nitidulus as occurring in Prince Edward Island. There are no records of this adventive Palaearctic species from the province, although it is more widely distributed in Nova Scotia than hitherto reported. Additional records of T. nitidulus are provided from Nova Scotia.
