Family CORIXIDAE 

Callicorixa praeusta praeusta (Fieber) 

Fieber (1848) recorded C. praeusta  from Sitka and Unalaska, and Heidemann (1900) reported this species from Kodiak and Sitka. However, Hungerford (1948) noted that the Fieber (1848) records must be based on misidentified specimens that are probably C. alaskensis Hungerford. Hungerford (1948)  listed the Fieber (1848) and Heidemann (1900) records under C. alaskensis  and in fact listed specimens that he had examined from Kodiak (10.ix. 1919 (Jas. S. Hine)) and Unalaska (26.viii. 1937 (V.B. Scheffer)). Sailer (1952) also noted that Hungerford (1948) had shown that the earlier records of C. praeusta  from Alaska actually referred to C. alaskensis  . This was also noted by Polhemus et al. (1988). Hence, the Kiritshenko (1960) and Lattin (2008) reports of C. praeusta  from Alaska must be disregarded, and this species removed from the list of Alaska Heteroptera  .
