7. Cremastus flavo-orbitalis (Cameron)   .

Tarytia flavo-orbitalis Cameron, Bombay Nat. Hist. Soc., Jour. 17: 589, 1907;   Morley, Fauna Brit. India, Hym. 3 (1): 506, 1913.

Cremastus flavoorbitalis, Cushman, Ent. Soc. Wash., Proc. 35 (5): 73, 1933.  

Mt. Alifan, May 21, reared from Eurrhyparodes tricoloralis (Zeller)   , a leafroller on a low weed called yerbas babue, Swezey;   Mt. Chachao, June 16, reared from a leafroller on Gymnosporia thompsonii, Swezey     ; Piti, June 22, reared from tortricid larva in pod of Pithecolobium dulce, Swezey   ;   Machanao, June 30, reared from Margaronia multilinealis   on Ficus tinctoria, Swezey     ; Talofofo, Nov. 18, collected among spiny amaranths infested with Hymenia fascialis   , one of its favorite hosts, Swezey   .

This species has a wide distribution in the Orient from India to Japan. It reached Hawaii as an immigrant, being first noticed in 1910. It was described and known for a long time under the name Cremastus hymeniae Viereck   . It was introduced from Japan into the United States as a parasite of the European corn borer, and was also introduced from Japan into Guam in 1931 for the same purpose. It became established, but Mr. Swezey did not rear it from the European ¬∑corn borer in 1936. It was, however, reared from several other species of moths.
