Sectiliclava Hoffer 1957


Sectiliclava Hoffer 1957  [New state record]

Hosts. Hemiptera  : Psyllidae 


Remarks. This genus has an interesting disjunct distribution: one species ( S. cleone  ) from the Palearctic, and two others ( S. isis Noyes & Hanson 1996  and S. pulchriceps Noyes & Hanson, 1996  ) from the Neotropics ( Noyes 2001). Noyes et al. (1997) reported an unidentified species, probably S. cleone  , from the Nearctic, representing the first record of the genus from this region. Specimens that are close to S. cleone  have been collected from psyllidinfested Cercocarpus betuloides  and Salix  ? lasiolepis in Contra Costa, El Dorado, Kern, Marin, Mono, Napa, Nevada, Stanislaus and Tuolumne counties ( EMEC, RLZC, UCDC), as well as Arizona ( RLZC) and Canada ( CAS). One specimen from Alberta was collected in 1928, indicating the presence of the genus in North America  is not the result of a recent introduction.
