status

 

Prochiloneurus Silvestri 1915 

Hosts. Hyperparasitoid of Hemiptera  : Pseudococcidae  via Hymenoptera  : Encyrtidae 

dactylopii ( Howard 1885: 17)  ( Chiloneurus  ) [new state record] ( RLZC, UCRC)

Type. USNM

Distribution. W (Alameda, Contra Costa, Glenn, Imperial, Marin, Orange, Santa Clara, Stanislaus, Tulare, Ventura)

Host/habitat. Hyperparasitoid of Ferrisia virgata  , Phenacoccus manihoti  , P. solenopsis  , P. sp., Planococcus citri  , Pseudococcus comstocki  , P. sp., Puto barberi  via Anagyrus diversicornis  , A. lopezi  , Leptomastix dactylopii  and Zarhopalus putophilus  .

Remarks. De Santis (1980) reported Coccus viridis  and Chrysopa  sp. as hosts for this species, evidently based on Parker et al. (1953), but the latter paper simply reported that P. dactylopii  was reared from a lot containing (principally) Coccus viridis  and some Chrysopa  cocoons—there is no conclusive evidence it emerged from either of these taxa. However, De Santis & Fidalgo (1994) reported a single female of this species had emerged from the pupa of a Sympherobius  sp. ( Neuroptera  : Hemerobiidae  ) collected in Chile—a record which, in my opinion, needs to be confirmed. A specimen from Orange County ( UCRC) was labeled as “working on C. citrophilus  ” (probably = Pseudococcus calceolariae  ). Several specimens from Alameda, Contra Costa, Glenn, Imperial, Santa Barbara and Santa Clara counties appear to be intermediate between P. dactylopii  and P. modestus  ( RLZC, UCDC).

modestus ( Timberlake 1924: 240)  ( Achrysopophagus  )

Type. USNM

Distribution. C (Fresno, Orange, Riverside, Tulare, Yuba)

Host/habitat. Hyperparasitoid of Pseudococcus maritimus  via Anagyrus yuccae  and Zarhopalus corvinus  ; NEW: P. comstocki  ( UCRC)

spp.

Remarks. Specimens that appear to represent three undescribed species have been collected from Alameda, Marin, San Bernardino and Santa Barbara counties  ( EMEC, RLZC, SBMN, UCRC).
