Cerchysius Westwood 1832  [New state record]

Hosts. Diptera  : Chamaemyiidae  , Drosophilidae  , Leucospidae 

marilandicus Girault 1917 e: 119  [New state record] ( CASAbout CAS, LACMAbout LACM, RLZC, UCDCAbout UCDC)

Type. USNMAbout USNM

Distribution. N (Contra Costa, El Dorado, Lassen, Marin, Napa, Nevada, Plumas, Santa Clara, Sierra, Siskiyou, Solano, Stanislaus, Sutter, Tehama, Yolo)

Host/habitat. Unknown

Remarks. The name of the paper in which C. marilandicus  was described was mistakenly recorded by Noyes (2001) as “Descriptions of miscellanous Chalcid-Flies from California”, but in fact the last two words are not present in the title. Of the 12 described species in this genus, only three ( laticeps Kerrich  , subplanus (Dalman) and ugandensis Kerrich, all Palearctic taxa) have recorded hosts, all Diptera  . However, there are two records in the literature of undescribed Cerchysius  from Hemiptera  : a Cerchysius  species near laticeps  was reared from a scale (“Coccid on wild plant”) in India (Shafee et al. 1975) (and not C. laticeps  itself on a Pseudococcidae  , as reported in Noyes & Hayat 1994 and Noyes 2001), and an undescribed species was reported as a hyperparasitoid on Coccus hesperidum  via Microterys nietneri  (as M. flavus  ) in California, and associated with Saissetia oleae ( Timberlake 1913)  . There is also a record of a Cerchysius  sp. as a hyperparasitoid on Coelomera lanio Dalman  , via Lydellothelaira collaris Townsend  ( Diptera  : Tachinidae  ) ( Parker et al. 1953).

Remarks. An apparently undescribed species is represented by a series of three specimens from Stanislaus County ( UCFCAbout UCFC).
