Coccidoctonus Crawford 1912 

Hosts. Hyperparasitoid of Hemiptera  : Asterolecaniidae  , Coccidae  via Hymenoptera  : Aphelinidae  , Encyrtidae  , Pteromalidae 

dubius ( Girault 1915 a: 102)  ( Rhopalencyrtoidea  )

Type. QM

Distribution. E (Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Stanislaus, Ventura)

Host/habitat. Hyperparasitoid of Coccus hesperidum  , C. viridis  , Parasaissetia nigra  , Russellaspis pustulans  , Saissetia coffeae  , S. oleae  via Anicetus beneficus  ; Coccophagus ceroplastae  , C. merceti  , Encyrtus infelix  , Metaphycus lounsburyi  , M. varius  , Microterys nietner  i, Moranila californica  , Scutellista caerulea 

Remarks. This species, referred to in the literature as Quaylea whittieri ( Girault 1918)  , was imported from Australia in 1901 under the mistaken belief it was a primary parasitoid of S. oleae  . One synonym (and nomen nudum) of C. dubius  is Hemencyrtus crawii Craw. Girault  has been mistakenly attributed as the author of this name, but it was Ashmead who devised the name (without description), which was first published in Craw’s (1902) report. Essig (1926) considered this species to be the chief factor in reducing the efficiency of S. caerulea  and M. lounsburyi  attacking S. oleae  in southern California. Bernal et al. (2001) reported this species on citrus 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.

Coelopencyrtus Timberlake 1919 b 

Hosts. Hymenoptera  : Apidae  , Colletidae 

hylaeoleter Burks 1958 a: 24 

Type. USNM

Distribution. N (Alameda, Los Angeles, Santa Clara, Yolo)

Host/habitat. Ceratina acantha  , C. punctigena  , C. sp., Hylaeus ellipticus  , Hylaeus  sp.

Remarks. Daly et al. (1967) reported that the undetermined Ceratina  species was either C. acantha  or C. nanula Cockerell  , but no adult bees were available for the specific identification.

spp.

Remarks. Specimens that may represent undescribed species were collected from Contra Costa ( EMEC, RLZC), Los Angeles ( LACM), Marin ( RLZC), San Diego ( CSCA), and Mono and Siskiyou ( USNM) counties.
