Aenasius Walker 1846 

Hosts. Hemiptera  : Pseudococcidae 

arizonensis ( Girault 1915 b: 280)  ( Chalcaspis  )

Type. USNM

Distribution. N (Imperial, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, Santa Clara, Tulare) Host/habitat. Phenacoccus solenopsis 

flandersi Kerrich 1967: 204 

Type. USNM

Distribution. W (San Diego)

Host/habitat. Ferrisia virgata  , Phenacoccus gossypii  , P. herreni  , P. madeirensis maplei Compere 1937: 397 

Type. USNM

Distribution. W (Ventura)

Host/habitat. Puto yuccae 

Remarks. Noyes (2001) cites Compere (1937) in reporting A. maplei  from Brazil, when in fact, Compere (pp. 390, 397–398) records this species only from California. The erroneous mention of Brazil for A. maplei  probably stems from the next species treated by Compere, A. brasiliensis (Mercet)  (pg. 398).

phenacocci ( Ashmead 1902: 301)  ( Blepyrus  )

Type. USNM

Distribution. N (Colusa, Imperial, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Joaquin, Ventura)

Host/habitat. Phenacoccus solani  , P. solenopsis 

Remarks. Formicococcus njalensis  is not a proven host (see Methods). A series of specimens from Riverside County identified as A. sp. nr. phenacocci  was reared from Heliococcus atriplicis  ( UCRC).
