Genus Wasmannia Forel 

Wasmannia auropunctata (Roger)  has been recorded occasionally from southern California. Native to the Neotropics, this aggressive species has not become established in California, probably because of climatic unsuitability. It is considered ecologically destructive in other areas where it has successfully invaded. References: Jourdan (1997), Le Breton et al.
