Anusioptera Brues 1910  [New state record]

Hosts. Hemiptera  : Pseudococcidae 

koebeli Trjapitzin 1997: 668  [New state record]( UCDC)

Type. BMNH

Distribution. W (Imperial)

Host/habitat. Unknown

Remarks. The single specimen from California varies slightly from the original description in regard to the dimensions of the syntergite and color, but Trjapitzin (1997) noted a fair degree of variation between specimens from southern Mexico and the USA, and so I feel confident assigning this specimen to the species. The only other species in the genus, A. aureocincta Brues, 1910  , was imported into California (as “undescribed genus near Leptomastix  ”) for control of Ferrisia virgata  , but died out in culture ( DeBach & Warner 1969). However, I have seen a single specimen of that species from Baja California ( UCRC), and it seems likely that it will eventually be found in California as well.
