Psyllaephagus iwayaensis Ishii, 1928  

Psyllaephagus iwayaensis Ishii, 1928: 128   .

Type material examined. LECTOTYPE: ♀ (here designated), (No. 145), Mountain Iwaya near Nagasaki, from psyllid found on Cinnamomum sp.   , 3.vi.1925, T. Ishii   lgt. PARALECTOTYPES: 5 ♀♀, same data as lectotype.

Additional material examined. 3 ♀♀, Matsuyama, ex Trioza cinnamomi   , 1.–5.v.1956, T. Tachikawa lgt. & det   .; 1 ♀ (on slide), Matsuyama, ex T. cinnamomi   , 1.v.1956, T. Tachikawa lgt. & det. ( ELKU)   .

Distribution. Japan: Kyushu, Shikoku ( TACHIKAWA 1963a). Endemic.

Comments. It is worth noting that the mesoscutum of the type specimens has a metallic blue-violet to golden lustre which contrasts with the green-bronze and golden lustre of the scutellum and gaster. In the TRJAPITZIN’ s (1989) key to species of Psyllaephagus   , couplet 63 is erroneous in that the marginal and postmarginal veins are both shorter than the stigmal vein, the ocelli form an 80° angle and AOL is less than POL. The same author incorrectly states that the mesoscutum and scutellum are with light purple-green metallic reflection, the postmarginal and marginal veins are as long as stigmal vein, the ocelli form a 60° angle and AOL is as long as POL.
