Charitopus Förster 1856 

spp.

Remarks. An undescribed species was collected in Los Angeles County ( UCRC). A second species that may be referrable to this genus was collected in Kern County ( RLZC).

Chrysoplatycerus Ashmead 1889 

Hosts. Hemiptera  : Pseudococcidae 

ferrisi Timberlake 1922: 6 

Type. USNM

Distribution. C (Calaveras, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, Santa Clara) Host/habitat. Anisococcus adenostomae  , Phenacoccus gossypii  Remarks. Hitherto known only from southern California, specimens from Calaveras and Santa Clara counties ( RLZC) shows this species reaches well into northern California.

splendens ( Howard 1888: 194)  ( Rileya  )

Type. USNM

Distribution. W (Alameda, Contra Costa, Los Angeles, Marin, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, San Diego, San Mateo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Ventura, Yolo, Yuba)

Host/habitat. Dysmicoccus brevipes  , D. ryani  , Ferrisia virgata  , Planococcus citri  , P. ficus  , Pseudococcus calceolariae  , P. comstocki  , P. longispinus  , P. maritimus  , P. viburni 

Remarks. Although this species was described from specimens collected in Los Angeles County in 1888, Essig (1911) stated that it “appears to be the same as one of the three introduced [into California] from the Philippine Islands by Compere.” Presumably, based on this observation Clausen (1915) reported that C. splendens  had been “placed” in San Diego County following its introduction. However, Noyes (2000: 215) thought it probable that Essig misapplied this name to a species from the genus Taftia  , which occurs in the Philippines and closely resemble the genus Chrysoplatycerus  . Formicococcus njalensis  is not a proven host (see Methods).
