status

 

Pseudleptomastix Girault 1915 d 

Hosts. Hemiptera  : Pseudococcidae 

squammulata Girault 1915 d: 272 

Type. USNM

Distribution. W (Alameda, Butte, Calaveras, Contra Costa, Fresno, Glenn, Imperial, Inyo, Kern, Lassen, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Joaquin, Santa Barbara, Ventura  )

Host/habitat. Amonostherium lichtensioides  , Pseudococcus maritimus  ; NEW: Spilococcus pressus 

Remarks. This species has also been reported from California under its junior synonyms Paraleptomastix notatus Girault 1917 c  and Pseudleptomastix flatulescens Compere 1926 a  . One of the distinguishing characters of this species is the all yellow fore coxae, but in a short series of specimens from Kern County ( RLZC), the color varies from almost all yellow to almost all black.

spp.

Remarks. Two species of the genus ( P. squammulata  and P. tertia Kerrich 1982  , the latter known only from the eastern seaboard) have been recorded from the United States, but I have seen specimens that appear to represent an additional five morphospecies present in the state from Kern, Imperial, Marin, Lassen, Los Angeles, Riverside, Santa Barbara and Stanislaus counties ( RLZC, UCDC, UCFC, UCRC). A single specimen ( UCRC) was reared from an Asphondylia  sp. stem gall on Larrea tridentata  , and a series of specimens from Marin County ( RLZC) appear to be associated with Calycadenia multiglandulosa  ( Asteraceae  ). There is another series of specimens that appear to be near to Pseudleptomastix  , reared in association with male Rhopus  from Dysmicoccus timberlakei  in Alameda County ( EMEC).
