status

 

Ammonoencyrtus De Santis 1964 

Hosts. Hyperparasitoid of Hemiptera  : Coccidae  via Hymenoptera  : Encyrtidae 

californicus ( Compere 1925: 304)  ( Eusemion  )

Type. USNM

Distribution. C (Alameda, Contra Costa, Los Angeles, Marin, Orange, Riverside, San Diego, Santa Barbara, Ventura  , southern San Joaquin Valley)

Host/habitat. Hyperparasitoid of Ceroplastes cirripediformis  , Coccus hesperidum  , Saissetia oleae  via Metaphycus lounsburyi  , Microterys nietneri  ; NEW: Eulecanium kunoense  ( EMEC), Parthenolecanium corni  , P. quercifex  , Pulvinariella mesembryanthemi  ( UCRC)

Remarks. This species was first referred to by Timberlake (1913) as “ Eusemion  n. sp. ”. A specimen from Contra Costa County ( EMEC), reported from E. kunoense  , is placed here, although it lacks the characteristic dark color of A. californicus  (possibly from being stored in alcohol for several years). Bernal et al. (2001) reported this species on citrus ( Rutaceae  ) from the southern San Joaquin Valley (Fresno, Kern and Tulare counties) without specifying exactly which county this species occurred in. They also reared this species from a batch of Coccus pseudomagnoliarum  , noting that the exact host still needs to be confirmed.
