Epitetracnemus Girault 1915 a
status

 

Epitetracnemus Girault 1915 a  [New state record]

Hosts. Hemiptera  : Asterolecaniidae  , Coccidae  , Diaspididae 

intersectus ( Fonscolombe 1832: 305)  ( Encyrtus  ) [New state record] ( EMEC, RLZC)

Type. Lost

Distribution. W (Alameda, Contra Costa, Yuba)

Host/habitat. Asterodiaspis  mina  , A. quercicola  , Asterolecanium  sp., Ceroplastes rubens  , Diaspidiotus bavaricus  , D. gigas  , D. macroporanus  , D. ostreaeformis  , D. perniciosus  , D. prunorum  , D. pyri  , Lepidoasphes tubulorum  , L. ulmi  , L. sp., Parthenolecanium rufulum  , Pseudaonidia duplex  , P. paeoniae  , Pseudaulacaspis pentagona  , Sphaerolecanium prunastri 

Remarks. De Santis (1989) reported Carulaspis minima (Signoret)  as a host from Bermuda, while Noyes (2001) reported both C. minima  and Lepidoasphes newsteadi (Šulc)  as hosts. These records appear to be erroneous, traceable to the biocontrol program directed against these two pests in Bermuda ( Bennett & Hughes 1959). Although E. intersectus  was exported from Italy as part of this program, I could find no primary records indicating that this species was successfully reared from either host.
