Adelencyrtus Ashmead 1900 

Hosts. Hemiptera  : Coccidae  , Diaspididae 

aulacaspidis ( Brèthes 1914: 29)  ( Prionomitus  )

Type. MACN

Distribution. W (Alameda, Contra Costa, Los Angeles, Marin, Ventura)

Host/habitat. Aulacaspis difficilis  , A. rosae  , Chionaspis salicis  , Diaspidiotus macroporanus  , Lepidosaphes cupressi  , Pseudaulacaspis pentagona  , Rhizopulvinaria nevesi 

odonaspidis ( Fullaway 1913: 27)  [New State record] ( RLZC)

Type. USNM

Distribution. A (Marin, Stanislaus)

Host/habitat. Duplachionaspis sansevieriae  , Odonaspis ruthae  , O. saccharicaulis  , O. sp.

Remarks. Burks (1958 b) reported a questionable host record of Antonia graminis  , but I suspect this was due to a misreading of the host “ Odonaspis graminis  ” as reported in the original description. While O. graminis Bremner  remains a valid species, the host of A. odonaspidis  in Hawaii is actually O. ruthae  ( Ben-Dov 2006 c). The host record of “ Odonaspidis  sp.” ( Noyes 2015) is probably referrable to a misspelling of Odonaspis  . Although originally described in Hawaii, Timberlake (1919 a) reported that its true place of origin was unlikely, but opined it may be from the warmer areas of Europe or Asia. The species has also been recorded from South Africa, Japan, Mexico, Brazil and the southeastern USA ( Noyes 2001), and was introduced into Bermuda in a biocontrol program against O. ruthae  (but failed to establish). I consider its presence in California as an adventitious introduction.
