Rhopus Förster 1856  [New state record]

spp.

Remarks. To date, only two described species, R. americanus  ( Girault 1915 e) and R. nigroclavatus ( Ashmead 1902)  have been reported from North America  , although neither has yet been found in California ( Noyes 2001). However, three morphospecies have been collected from Distichlis  sp. ( Poaceae  ) and terrestrial grasses from Alameda, Contra Costa, El Dorado, Imperial, Lassen, Marin, Placer, Santa Barbara and Solano counties ( EMEC, RLZC, UCDC, UCRC), while some males have been reared from Dysmicoccus timberlakei  in Alameda County ( EMEC) ( NEW), in association with specimens that appear to be near Pseudleptomastix  .
