** Brumus quadripustulatus (Linnaeus)   . Multnomah Co., Portland, NW Front & Yeon, 10­VI­93, PSB trap ODA, RLW. According to Gordon (1985), this introduced European species was known only in California, from the San Francisco Bay area to Monterey. Establishment in Oregon remains questionable, though clearly the climate is compatible.

** Rhyzobius lophanthae (Blaisdell)   . Marion Co., Salem, in house, 7­VII­2000; Multnomah Co., Portland, 24­IX­75, on Sequoiadendron gigantea   infested with Carulaspis juniperi, RLW. The   known distribution of this Australian native in the U.S., which was imported during the 1890s for biological control of scale insects, is from Delaware to central California ( Gordon 1985). It is sold commercially and it is likely established in Oregon.
