celtidisvesiculum Riley, 1884 

Type locality: USA.

Additional distribution: USA, widely distributed in eastern and central North America; considered introduced in California.

Host plant: Celtis laevigata  .

Remarks: First recorded in California in 1960 ( Gill 1989); common name: hackberry blister gall psyllid.

Pexopsylla Jensen  cercocarpi Jensen, 1957 

Type locality: USA, California

Host plant: Cercocarpus betuloides  , C. ledifolius  . Parasitoids: Prionomitus mitratus  , Psyllaephagus  sp., and Tamarixia riozae  .

Phylloplecta Riley 

Phylloplecta Riley, 1884  . Type species Phylloplecta tripunctata (Fitch, 1851) 

Choricymoza Bliven, 1955  . Type species Choricymoza sequoiae Bliven, 1955  syn.n.

Burckhardt and Lauterer (1997) suggested a congeneric status for Choricymoza  and Phylloplecta  based on the close similarity of Choricymoza sequoiae  to Phylloplecta rubicola ( Tuthill, 1943)  according to Bliven’s original descriptions of the former. From examination of the type material ( CAL) we can confirm the superficial designation of this species as a monotypic genus, and as with Nyctiphalerus  above, it seems that Bliven may not have examined related Californian species.
