Redescription. See Huber (1988).

Diagnosis. Gonatocerus (Cosmocomoidea) dolichocerus   is a member of the bucculentus   subgroup of the ater species group. Female antenna as in Fig. 294 View FIGURES 294 – 296 . Pronotum concolorous with remainder of mesosoma; propodeum ( Fig. 295 View FIGURES 294 – 296 ) with submedian carinae converging anterodorsally, not extending to anterior margin of propodeum; forewing ( Fig. 296 View FIGURES 294 – 296 ) usually with a complete cubital row of setae and without darker bands or spots. Superficially, it is easily confused with G. (Cosmocomoidea) ashmeadi Girault   , but this latter species lacks an occipital sulcus from the back of the head so the gena, in lateral view, do not appear constricted next to the eye. In G. dolichocerus   there is an occipital sulcus that is wider than long, flattened or indented above the foramen.

Distribution. NEOTROPICAL*: Mexico (Veracruz). NEARCTIC: Canada ( Huber 1988), Mexico (Nuevo León), and USA. OCEANIA: French Polynesia (Society Islands, Tuamotu Archipelago: Tahiti Island ( Grandgirard et al. 2007) and Moorea Island), and Hawaiian Islands ( USA: Hawaii) ( Huber & Beardsley 2000). Huber (1988) mentioned occurrence of this species in Mexico without providing further details on its distribution there.

Hosts. Gyponana   sp. ( Cicadellidae   ), as well as Stictocephala bisonia Kopp & Yonke   [as Ceresa bisonia Kopp & Yonke   ] and Tortistilus pacificus (Van Duzee)   [as Stictocephala pacifica Van Duzee   ] ( Membracidae   ) ( Huber 1988).
